comment Is my sons' school portal in violation of any Password/UserID rules?
Yes, I am in the US and this is a prep school with students from around the US as well as 14 other countries. Absolutely agree that this is bad practice, and plan to escalate, but absolutely wish I had something more concrete like privacy laws. Although, risk of reputation is a big deal in private schools. I can at least take that angle. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the information. Interestingly enough, I am not forgetting my password. They are proactively sending it to me when they require me to get into the site to get something administratively done, such as class registration. Further, they are sending both my userid AND my password in the same USPS mail. I went in to change my password and they sent me a confirmation in email, again Userid and password. This is the same site I use to to check my kid's grades too, so I am in there enough to both remember my password, but certainly my ID.
