Effective March, 2024, password resets are now available within Clever! The following instructions have been updated to reflect the new password reset functionalty in Clever that can be used by students OR their teachers.

Passwords can be changed in Clever for individual students by a classroom teacher, School Tech Lead in Clever, or the individual student on their own or with assistance from a teacher or School Tech Lead. By changing passwords in Clever, users can:

  • Securely and efficiently change passwords
  • Change passwords without needing to be on the BPS network
  • Reduce the amount of instructional time lost due to password provisioning

Please follow the steps below for information on how to reset passwords.

Student Self-Service Password Reset Instructions

Students can change passwords on their own or with the assistance of a classroom teacher or School Tech Lead. Click here for student reset instructions.

Reset by Teacher or School Tech Lead Instructions

Teachers can change passwords for students in their classes (from Aspen).

School Tech Leads (admin role in Clever) are usually school leaders and other leadership staff at a school. If you are not a School Tech Lead for your school in Clever and need the ability to reset passwords for students at your school, your School Leader will need to submit your name via the Clever School Tech Lead Request Form.

The below instructions show how users who have the Teacher role in Clever can change student passwords for individual students.


1. This is an interactive tutorial to show you how to reset a password for a student. This process can be used by any teacher in BPS to reset passwords for students in their classes.

2. Start by logging into Clever. If your screen looks different, click the Enhanced Portal button at the top. You can always switch back to the classic view if you prefer, however password resets are only in the new view.

3. There are two ways of getting to the password reset screen. The first is to use the search bar at the top to find a student. This is probably the fastest way if you are trying to help a specific student.
