PASSWORD PROBLEMS?

Visit the VSB's  self-serve Student Password Reset Portal to reset your network password. You will need your PEN number (found in your MyED account, under Student Details) and your Date of Birth.

If you do not know your PEN number, you may find it on a past report card. Alternatively, you can also ask one of our amazing office staff or your counsellor.

A new password must meet the Password Complexity Requirement. The password field will be checked before allowing the student to click Submit. The Password must be in this format:

Grades 8-12:

·       Passwords must be a minimum of three words

·       Each word must have at least 3-letters

·       Each word can include one number
