Google Apps for Education

We are a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) district. Over the course of this school year, we have offered numerous trainings over the different Google Applications. We will be fully implementing and transitioning from Microsoft to Google in the 2016-2017 school year so start learning now. We will be offering a number of training opportunities throughout the summer to assist you with the transition. Watch out for our summer training schedule to be released with both face-to-face and webinar offerings.

Gmail is Coming!

As we transition to Google, beginning in June, we will be switching from Microsoft Outlook to Gmail. If you are already familiar with gmail, then this transition will be easy. For those that might need a little assistance, we will be offering a number of trainings throughout the summer. Watch for our summer training schedule to be released.
