Google Apps for Education

We are excited to offer Google Apps accounts to our students in grade 6-12.  Google Apps is free for education.  A wealth of tools in the Google Apps suite will support the communication and collaboration skills that are essential to prepare students for today's world.  
Benefits of Google Apps for Education (GAFE)

  • Google Drive- available anywhere from any device with Internet access, drive provides cloud storage of documents, photos, videos, and more online
  • Storage space - unlimited online cloud storage for email, documents, photos and files, eliminating the need for flash drives
  • Google Calendar - keep track of important assignments and school activities
  • Google Docs – create documents, tables, forms, drawings, and spreadsheets. The presentation editor creates slide shows with animation and videos.
  • Google Sites- a web design tool
  • Gmail – students can send and receive electronic messages. Students can only send or receive email messages from teachers or other students at Faribault Schools or from only school approved domains.  In addition, student email and Internet access will be filtered as required by the federal Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) to protect student’s online safety.

We are excited to be bringing these tools to our district !
