As with any educational endeavor, we feel that a strong partnership with families is essential to a successful experience. Therefore, we are asking your permission to provide a Google Apps for Education account to your child.
What’s included in Google Apps for Education?
Google Apps for Education provides for greatly enhanced flexibility over traditional desktop software while allowing students to work in a protected environment in a private domain at a substantial cost savings.
Google Classroom allows for digital classroom collaboration and workflow.
Google Calendar lets you create and share school or class calendars and events.
Google Docs lets you create and share documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and forms.
Google Sites makes it easy to collect, share, and publish all types of content in a single website through easy embeds of Google Docs, Google Calendars, videos, and other media without coding experience.
Gmail provides restricted email accounts for students beginning in grade 6 and fully functional email accounts for students beginning in grade 9. (Gmail will not be accessible for elementary students.)
Google Apps for Education accounts are free from advertising.
Be advised that this permission form will remain in effect throughout the student’s academic career in RSU 21. Should the parent/guardian request a change, please notify RSU 21 in writing.
