    New Student Password Information

    Students will be guided through this change in classes.

    New formatting:
     ‘1’ will be used at the beginning of all student usernames. 
    the 3-character abbreviation for the school will no longer be used.

    Username standard: 1st initial, middle initial, last name {appended with numbers to make it unique if necessary}
    old username: wtm_ssmacer
    new username: 1ssmacer

    * Student accounts ending in 001, 002, etc, will no longer have zero's at the end of the username. 

    ex:  bal_jrjones001  becomes 1jrjones1

    This will be a permanent username for the students’ use for their time with the district, regardless of the school they attend.
