Skyward Student Tech Credentials (link)

Logins utilize the student lunch code, with added leading zeros, as the nine-digit Skyward login.  Example:  lunch number 12345 will use 000012345. 

Students enrolled after August 1, 2016 will utilize their six-digit lunch code as the Skyward login which starts with a 2.  Example:  202020.

Students must change their Skyward password from the password initially issued.
New passwords must be a minimal of five characters, with at least one character being numeric.

If you have not changed your password and are locked out, try using your old login and then your last name in lowercase  and grade (examples: smith9, brown10, miller11, johnson12) for the student password.  Contact the front office for additional assistance. 

Parents may edit student data through the Skyward Parent Portal.  Contact the school office for a username and password.  Student Information Instructions for Parents (pdf).

Microsoft 365

Bedford County Schools has Microsoft 365 accounts and email addresses for grades 9th–12th.   Microsoft 365 provides access to online versions of Office 365 products such as Word, PowerPoint, OneDrive, and Sway.  Microsoft 365 will provide students a great tool to help with writing papers, creating a presentation, and collaborate more with teachers and staff.  Students have the ability to access these applications and their files from any computer able to access to the Internet.

Students are able to look up their new Microsoft 365 account user name and password from a Student Technology Credentials report located inside their Skyward user portal.  

Instructions on how a student can look up their information is located on the Bedford County Schools web page under Quick Links for StudentsInstructions on how to log in to Microsoft 365 are also on the web page (link).

Students have the ability to download 5 full versions of Office 365 Professional to use on personal devices if they wish.  Instructions on how to download these licenses are provided in the “How to log into Microsoft 365” document on the above district web page.  This is an offering that Microsoft provides.  Therefore, Bedford County Schools is not able to provide technical support for applications on personal devices.
