What are the requirements for my password?

Passwords must be at least 8 characters in length and contain at least 3 of the following 4 types of characters:
  • lower case letters (i.e. a-z)
  • upper case letters (i.e. A-Z)
  • numbers (i.e. 0-9)
  • special characters (e.g. ?,./|\">!@#$%^&*()_+{}[]~`:;"'<>?,./|\)

In addition, passwords must:

  • Not be a single word found in the dictionary (in any language), whether spelled forwards or backwards, or a single word preceded or followed by a digit (e.g., secret1, 1secret)

Note: It is OK to use real words in passwords as long as you use more than one and still include the different required character types. Modified dictionary words are even better.

  • Not include user name or login name
  • Not be a common keyboard sequence, such as "qwerty89" or "abc123"

How do I get working papers?

Part I - Your parent or guardian must sign the form and your social security number is required on the form.

Part II - If you are a student at Canandaigua Academy, please provide your date of birth on the form. Otherwise, you must have one of the items listed (birth certificate, state issued photo, I.D. driver's license, schooling record, etc.) to show evidence of age.

Part III - You must have had a physical examination and proof of a physical examination within the past 12 months in order to receive a working card. If you have had a physical, take the green form to the nurse's office. The nurse will record on this form the date of your physical. Otherwise, visit your doctor's office.

When all three parts (I-III) are completed, please bring the green form to one of the secretaries in the Counseling Center for a colored working card.

Remote Access

Remote Access uses software called VMware View that allows you to connect to a windows computer at the school district remotely from any computer or tablet on the Internet. The computer you are connecting to is configured just like one that you would find in any of our computer labs with most of the software you would normally use.

You can connect with your browser (use the Remote Access button at the top of the page) which will work for most uses or you can download a client for your device and connect with it. The client will give you USB connectivity for Windows and the Mac and a little better picture and sound quality.

**You can also download the Remote Access client onto your personal device for easier and more dynamic use of your school desktop.
