- AACPS Staff (all AACPS staff with AACPS e-mail accounts): Your Blackboard password is always the same as your AACPS network password. Use P-Sync or your web Outlook account to change your password.
- Students: Your Blackboard password is the same as your school system computer login password. See your teacher for the policy regarding changing your network password.
- Special Guests on our system: The teacher of your Blackboard course or the manager of your Blackboard community can change the password for this account. You cannot change it yourself.
Note to Blackboard course instructors and community managers: You can change the Blackboard password for non Active Directory user names (an example would be some Home-Hospital students). Go to Control Panel - List/Modify Users. Search for the user. You will see the option to change the user's password.
It takes Time for your new Password to Replicate
When you change your network password, that change has to be replicated on several special servers across our school system. It can take from fifteen minutes to several hours for this change to take effect. So, if you change your AACPS network password, please wait at least an hour before trying that new password in Blackboard.
