First Step - Linking your accounts

This step will link your school account with your school Google account so that they have the same password.

1) Login into your laptop or any school computer

2) Once logged in, at the same time press CTRL + ALT + Delete on the keyboard

3) Scroll down to "Change Password" and click on it

4) You should see your username in the first box

5) Enter the password you use to login to school computers in the second box

6) Repeat that same password in the third and fourth box and then click on the arrow

So, you haven't really changed your password, you've now linked your accounts so that your Google account has the same password
