Excerpt and brief explanation from “New Password Policy for Students in Grades 6 to 12” by 4J Director of Technology, Peter Tromba:

The reason for this change is that the district has experienced attacks on student accounts and district resources that are made possible because the first password a student gets is generic and easy to guess. Starting on the 22nd, students can change their password to a more hard-to-guess password and by November 1, students will not be able to access the internet, email, or other district resources unless they have done this.

All users (both students and staff) can set their passwords from school or from any device connected to the Internet by going to:

All students, even those who have already changed their password in the past, will need to choose a new password. Instructions on this site explain that the password needs to be complex enough so that it is not easy to hack.
