Your Email Address and Login Credentials

With the transition to our new email system (Office 365) completed, ITS can no longer change your LDSB-ID email address.  Once you have your Active Directory LDSB-ID it cannot be easily renamed. Your current email address will remain, regardless whether your circumstances change in the future, i.e., married, divorced, etc.  

Your password is the same one you use to log into computers at your school. Also, to sign in to the following websites if you use them: Helpdesk, PdPlace, IEPWriter, BringIT wireless network, Trillium, Webdocs, and Google.

Your Display Name

If you would like to change the appearance of your name, you must first contact Human Resources and request your Preferred Name be changed. Setting your Preferred Name will help to ensure that your name is displayed properly in Office 365. For example, If your name appears as T. Margaret Christopher or Margaret Christopher and you would like it to appear as Maggie Christopher.
