If a student comes in person to have a password reset, request to see their school ID or an official state ID or drivers license. Confirm that the student coming in matches their ID.
If the student does not have an ID with them, ask them information only they would know from the Infinite Campus information screen. Questions like: Date of Birth, what road they live on, parent's name, email, etc.
Do not interrogate them, usually depending on how they answer, you can tell if it is them or not.
If a request for a password reset comes through email, only reply to their official school email address.
After confirming the identity of the student, copy their 10-digit State ID number.
