Login Issues - Message from IT Department.

Due to a technical issue, a large number of students may be experiencing difficulty logging into the TDSB Connects App or other services such as Brightspace or Google Workspace.


If students are unable to access their TDSB account, please share these instructions with them. If those instructions were not successful the student may access the Self Service Password Reset tool to change their password.

Students in Grades 5-12 can also reset their own passwords directly on the login page of many online tools, including Brightspace. Once registered, students will be able to use security questions, email, phone, text message or an “authenticator” smartphone app, to validate their password reset requests. For additional information, please view this infographic or demo video.

New Students: Students new to TDSB will have their password set to the Shared Secret Password. This is a combination of the last 4 digits of your Student Number, followed by 2 digits for your day of birth, and 2 digits for your month of birth, followed by “@Tdsb” (case sensitive and 13 characters in total).

TDSB Code of Online Conduct

With the move to remote learning in effect, we wish to remind students, parents/guardians and community of the TDSB Code of Online Conduct.

TDSB Connects

All students are encouraged to download the TDSB connects app. Students can access their timetables, school calendar and announcements along with other school information. In an effort to be more environmentally conscious, timetables will not be printed and distributed to students. Students who do not have access to a device, can contact their guidance counsellor for the latest copy of their timetable.

To download the app, go to:

Google Play Store or Apple App Store
