    There is a change from past practices, as we were able to use generic usernames and passwords.  Here is what the student usernames and passwords will look like:

    Capital First Initial lower case last initial birthday

    Example (Student’s name is John Doe. His birthday is January 1, 2010


     (NO leading zeroes needed for single digit birth months and days.)
