Staff G Suite Account

What is a G Suite for Education Staff Account?

A G Suite for Education staff account allows you to access and share files within a secure collaboration platform built by Google and managed by the School District. A G Suite account allows collaboration between staff and students through the suite of Google productivity tools. These tools are accessible from any device that has access to the internet.

Where do I find more information about using G Suite with my students?

Please visit our Technology for Learning site for resources that will help you use G Suite tools in your classroom.

I have a personal Google Account. Can I use it, instead of a district managed account?

Personal Google accounts have several limitations compared to district managed ones. Many of the available resources shared by other district users can only be accessed with a district account. Furthermore, in order to use platforms like Google Classroom with students a district managed account is required.

I have never had a district managed G Suite account. How do I request one?
