Share Catalog

ATTENTION! To login to your SHARE account, your username is the letter j + a zero + the "other ID" number on your Skyward acount. For example, if the number on your "other ID" number is 6421, your SHARE account number is j06421. Your password is 4444

If your number starts with a 1, you will probably not need to add the zero to the beginning of your number. Just add the j.
