Active Directory/Open Directory (AD/OD)
Canyons District's Active Directory (AD) allows for every student and teacher to have their own username and password to log into lab computers as well as the ability to digitally turn in and return classwork.
With the AD/OD system, each student will login in to all lab computers using their own unique username and password. Students must login with their AD credentials every time they use a networked computer. They must also log out every time they are finished using that machine to ensure that others do not have access to their account and their projects. This login allows students to access their own projects from any networked computer in their school.
Students will need to memorize their username and password. This username and password will stay with each student throughout their career in Canyons School District.
For a printable version of the log-in instructions above, see the document to the right under Student Instructions.
Teachers log in using their Active Directory username and password. These credentials should be the same as your email account.
Username: first name.last name
If you do not remember your username and/or password, please call Help Desk at 801-826-5544.
