How do I change my Network password when it expires? 

In an effort to increase network security and comply with NY State Security Audits, we are implementing a password enforcement policy. This policy will require that all users change their password twice yearly (every 180 days).

Passwords must:

  • Be at least 8 characters in length
  • Contain at least 1 uppercase character
  • Contain at least 1 lowercase character
  • Contain at least 1 number or character

Password Pointers:

  • Your password should not contain personal information, such as your name, your child's name, your dog's name, or your birth date, a prior password, or any common words.
  • Never write down your password.
  • Never share your password with anyone.
