Who has an account?

All students K-12 have GCCISD Google Accounts at the domain.

All staff have 2 GCCISD Google Accounts, one using the domain and one using the domain.

Why do staff members have 2 accounts?

In order for staff and students to be able to search for each other in the global address list, they must all have at the end of their email address. Therefore, if you are communicating and sharing information/files with students it is suggested you use the domain.

For staff to staff file sharing, it is suggested you use the account.

  • For example:
    Google+, Talk, Hangouts, & Blogger will not work on your account.
