A new feature has been added to Campus Portal which gives students and guardians the ability to reset their password or request their username should you ever need to. Campus Portal is Dinwiddie County Public Schools district-wide student database which lets guardians and students quickly access important information so they may better understand and participate in the educational process.
To better protect your privacy and security, all users will be required to add additional security preferences when registering a new account or logging into an existing account. Security preferences are another layer of protection for your account.
If you already have a Portal account, click http://www.dinwiddie.k12.va.us/information/portal/resetting-your-portal-account/ for information on setting up your Security Preferences.
If you have received your activation code from your child’s school, click http://www.dinwiddie.k12.va.us/information/portal/ for information on creating your new account.
NOTE: If you use the Campus mobile app, security preferences need to be set on a desktop computer or laptop before the mobile app will work correctly. If not, the only fix is to reinstall the newest version of the mobile app.
