Clearing Locks for Multiple Personnel Accounts

A personnel account becomes locked when a person enters an incorrect password too many times in a row. The school network administrator sets the number of attempts allowed using the Login Attempts Allowed setting. Personnel with locked accounts cannot log in again until the lock has been cleared or until the following day (locks clear automatically at midnight).

School network personnel can clear locks for any personnel member. School administrators can clear locks for personnel in their own school.

If you are a school administrator and you have access to more than one school, select the school to work in before following these steps. To do this, on the Home page, select your name at the top; then, select Change Role in the menu that opens. You can then choose the school to work in.

Who can do this with default capabilities?
