The G Suite for Education (formerly called Google Apps for Education) core services are the heart of Google’s educational offering to schools. The core services are Gmail (including Inbox by Gmail), Calendar, Classroom, Contacts, Drive, Docs, Forms, Groups, Sheets, Sites, and Slides. These services are provided under the G Suite agreement.
Our schools using G Suite core services in compliance with COPPA and FERPA. G Suite core services contain no advertising and do not use information in those services for advertising purposes.
More than 50 million students, teachers, and administrators in almost every country in the world rely on G Suite to learn and work together. Our school is committed to protecting the privacy and security of all our users, including students.
Google Apps - includes word processing, spreadsheet, forms, and presentation applications. Learners can work on documents from any Internet-accessible computer/device and can share work with teachers and other learners. Learner's headaches from lost papers or damaged USB drives are a thing of the past as all files are stored in the Google Drive.
Learner Guidelines :
Permission from parents is required because our school assumes the responsibility for complying with COPPA and the information that students submit. When offering online services to children under 13, schools must be cognizant of Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). COPPA is a regulation that requires parental consent for the online collection of information about users under 13. Per the Google Apps Education Edition Agreement, any school administering Google Apps Education Edition acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with COPPA, including, but not limited to, obtaining parental consent concerning a collection of students' personal information used in connection with the provisioning and use of the Services by the Customer and End Users.
Parents are encouraged to explore Google G-suite with their children by logging in together. Learners have been warned that Google Apps are not private and that their accounts may be monitored for compliance with school policies. Learners are expected to follow school rules (see guidelines) when online just as they do in the classroom. It's OK to ask your children to share their Google password with you and to look over their school work stored in Google
