    • Username: dist428\first.last

  • Click Log In, and you will be directed to a page where you will enter the student ID.
  • Once the student ID is entered, click Reset Student Password

  • Once you have clicked Reset Student password, a text prompt will appear with a new password for the student.
  • IMPORTANT: Before the student can begin using their new password, they must sign in to gmail ONCE (not chromebook).
    • Use your own computer- and navigate to http://gmail.com
    • Sign yourself out.
    • Go back to http://gmail.com and sign in as the student with the new password. (NOTE: Capitals matter)
    • Once you have successfully signed into the student's email, they can log into the chromebook again with the new password.
