available in the enrollment packet. Please contact your child's school if you wish to adjust your preference.

Any student who has or will be absent for ten consecutive school days will be withdrawn from the District per Oregon law, and their account will be deactivated. Upon re-enrollment, their account will be reinstated.
How can students download a copy of their emails and files?
Students may download a copy of all email and files via the Google Takeout application
. Note that documents created and shared with others will no longer be accessible to anyone else once the student's account is deactivated. However, students can transfer ownership of documents prior to deactivation.
Why use the student ID for a login?
The IT department looked at various options for the format of the student login, including the current practices of districts across the country. It was collectively decided the student ID would be the best choice for a number of reasons:
- The student ID is unique to each student
- Students already use this student ID for other services such as library checkouts and lunch purchases
We evaluated the security implications and determined the risk was very low, for the following reasons:
- The BSD student ID is not the same as the State of Oregon student ID used for student records, state reporting, and assessments
- Other systems using the BSD student ID have secondary protection measures to prevent fraud, including the display of each student's image when getting lunch or a library book
- Student accounts are protected with a password
