    With the Google Chromebook being the district-wide student device, your student will be using the Google Suite to complete assignments and activities. The sheet below will be a helpful resource if you run into any questions about how to use any of these applications.
     
     
    What are the G-Suite Applications Available? Click the drop down to discover each application's use.
     
     
    Where and how do I access these tools?
     

    Students automatically have Google accounts and have access to the G-Suite tools. They can access these tools by opening the Google Chrome web-browser and then click on the "waffle" in the upper right corner of the screen. This will open up a small window with the applications available to them. They may have to scroll down in the window to get to additional applications.

    Parents will only have access to these tools if they have their own Google account. Note- some of these tools are only available to students through our Google Apps for Education account, for example Google Classroom.
