How to Change Your Security Question

For added security, you will be asked to answer a security question when trying to reset the password for your school account.

For some younger students, the security question is preset to Name of this city? with the answer: Newburyport

If you need to change your security question, you can do so from a web browser on any device by using our Single Sign-On (SSO) portal:
