In order to increase security to Jordan School District computer systems, the following changes are being implemented:
- The minimum password length will be 10 characters for employee passwords in Skyward, Google and Active Directory (the password you use to log in to your computer every morning.) At some point over the next few months, you may be prompted to create a new password that is at least 10 characters long. As a reminder, a strong password includes upper case and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.
- For employee Google email accounts (@jordandistrict.org), emails will have an eight-year retention. All emails that are eight years or older will automatically be deleted from Google.
If you have any questions, please contact the Information Systems help desk at 801-567-8737.
