The Goose Goes Google
Who has an account?
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?
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?
- 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!
