Student PAL Accounts and Passwords – Summer 2018

In order to avoid issues over the summer and minimize support requests in September, the following changes will be taking place with respect to student passwords:

  • Password settings for all secondary students (including those who are coming into grade 9) will be reset so that student passwords do not expire between June ​29​ and ​October​ 15, 2018.
  • Password expiry will be turned on ​October 15, 2018.
  • Therefore, it will be essential that all students (grade 9 through 12) update their passwords when they return to school before ​October 15, 2018.

Students who are graduating this year or are leaving the WRDSB – please ensure you back up any required material from your WRDSB Google Drive/Email prior to the end of June as your accounts will be shut down over the summer.
