Accessing Google from Home

In an effort to ensure our students are future ready, your child has their own Google for Education account. This is a district managed account to enable your child to participate in integrated, collaborative learning experiences with other NISD students and teachers. We encourage you to have your child access their google account at home and share with you the variety of projects and activities they have been working on in their classes. Students in grades three through five have created a digital e-portfolio for the purpose of organizing, sharing, and showcasing their learning. To access Google for Education accounts at home, please use the links provided below for the login credentials and additional information.

All students will participate in Digital Citizenship lessons designed to facilitate conversations about digital citizenship throughout Northwest ISD classrooms and homes. Although only teachers enroll in the course, parents may view the course content through Guest access and are invited to join the conversation using #1toWorld promise.
