PD Password Change

In most instances, when you log on to the district's PD site, they will ask for a new password. In the past, you were using your six-digit employee number. This time, the website seeks an eight digit code. One recommendation is to use your birthdate. (XXXX19xx).

For example, if your birthday is September 8, 1961, you can choose to make your password, (09081961). Another suggestion is to use the same code you use to access your district e-mail.

Choose as you wish
