What is GaDOE Community?

Why am I not receiving my password reset information?

There could be multiple reasons why you have not received your password reset information:

  • The email may be in a spam/junk folder
  • The email is blocked by your school/district
  • The original email address was incorrectly typed
  • The inbox does not match the account email address submitted

Please double-check all folders and that you are looking at the inbox that matches the account email address.

Why does it say there is no account with that username or email address?

If you receive an error after attempting to reset your password, this means there is no active account with the username and/or email address entered.

If you receive this error, please verify you have entered your work email/username correctly without typos.

If you still receive an error, please create a new account.
