accounts for staff and students in the district. These secure, online applications allow staff & students to communicate and collaborate using Google powered email, calendars, document sharing, and websites. These applications are different from public Google applications (such as Gmail) in that they are managed by the district, do not include any advertising, and have more strict filtering and content controls. See this page
for detailed information about privacy and Google Apps.
