    Student Username, Password and Portal Login Information

    NEW SPS Students:
    If you have never logged onto the SPS Student Portal, need your username, or a password reset, please contact a teacher or the school librarian.

    ALL SPS Students:
    Your username is located on your parent or guardian's Source account,
    near your photo. 
    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

      Default passwords:

      If this is your first time logging in, contact your school for your default password.  After entering your username and default password, you will get a prompt to create a new password:
      • At least 7 characters long for grades 5-12
      • At least 4 characters long for grades K-4

      If you need help, please contact your teacher or school librarian.

      If you forgot your student password:

      If you forgot your current password but remember the previous password, you may be able to reset it by visiting https://onedrive.seattleschools.org

      If you do not remember any previous passwords, please ask your teacher or school librarian to help you.  If your teacher or librarian provides a temporary password, follow these steps to set up a new password.
