    Student Username, Password and Portal Login Information

    NEW SPS Students:
    Your school will provide your username and default password. Your initial log in must be done at school.  If you need to log in before classes begin, please contact your school for assistance.

    ALL SPS Students:
    All student usernames begin with 1. 
    Example: 1jrsmith
    Some students will have numbers at the end of their username to ensure each SPS student has a unique username.
    Example: 1jrsmith2

    • When logging onto the Student Portal, students include @seattleschools.org after their username
      Example: 1jrsmith@seattleschools.org
    • When logging onto the Source, students only enter their username
      Example: 1jrsmith

    If you have forgotten your password, please scroll to the If you forgot your student password section below.  If you are unable to reset your password, please contact your school for assistance.
