Who has an account?

All students K-12 have GCCISD Google Accounts at the @student.gccisd.net domain.


All staff have 2 GCCISD Google Accounts, one using the @student.gccisd.net domain and one using the @gccisd.net 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 @student.gccisd.net at the end of their email address. Therefore, if you are communicating and sharing information/files with students it is suggested you use the @student.gccisd.net domain.


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


CAUTION: Some Google Apps and/or features may work in one domain and not the other.

  • For example:
    Google+, Talk, Hangouts, & Blogger will not work on your @student.gccisd.net account.
    Gmail & Google Classroom will not work on your @gccisd.net account.

What can I access with my account?

Gmail
  • Elementary & Junior School students - Have access to Gmail but are only able to email @student.gccisd.net accounts and receive emails from approved domains (apple.com, prezi.com, etc.)
  • High School students - Have access to Gmail and are able to email any email address.


Google Drive - Access to Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawing, and MORE!


Google Calendar - Save important events and add attachments. Learn more on using Google Calendars here.


Google Scholar - Search scholarly papers, save articles and citations to your account.
