As you may be aware, LCPS adopted new information security controls this year. One of the most significant changes is the use of strong passwords for students in grades 2-12. A strong password is the best defense in protecting data and student privacy. Our information security regulation states that strong passwords have the following characteristics:
a. Contain both upper and lower case alpha characters
b. Have digits, punctuation and special characters
c. Contain at least eight characters including alpha, numeric and special characters.
An example is L@p$R0@k$! This may also be called a “passphrase” – LCPS Rocks for example.
