    Summer 2019 Student Username Changes

    Starting August 13th, 2019, all student usernames have changed to a new format. Please visit The Source to obtain your new username. Below you will find an explanation of what changed.

    All incoming 5th and 6th grade students will be required to change their password. View the Password change section below to learn more.

    What Changed?

    Student Name: John Samuel Smith

     OLD Username  NEW Username
     First 4 Characters = XYZ_
     Sample Old Username: xyz_jssmith
     First Character = 1
     Sample New Username: 1jssmith

    Starting August 13th, 2019, new student usernames will be based on the following protocol:

    RETURNING SPS students:
    The 3-letter prefix and underscore will be replaced by the number 1.
    For example, XYZ_jssmith becomes 1jssmith.

    If you had numbers at the end of your username, for example, XYZ_gcwashington002. The new format will remove the leading ‘0’s and, in this example, your new username will be: 1gcwashington2.

    If you remember your password, it will still work. 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.

    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.
