Dear Parent/Guardian,


This year students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade will be participating in a district pilot project that provides students with a Google email and Google education account. As part of this, students will be receiving access to Google Apps for Education (GAfE). This project will help the district learn about the educational benefits and challenges of having access to online learning resources and tools.

The Google educational account allows students to share documents with their teachers and classmates, for educational purposes. Students will not be able to send or receive emails to/from people outside of Edmonds School District. Outside of school, your student can use nearly any digital device that has internet access (phone, pad, and computer) to log into their school account, access GAfE, and complete assignments. Please have your child share their username and password with you, so that you can monitor their schoolwork at home.

Students will receive various trainings such as how to: use a computer safely, responsibly handle technology equipment, and appropriately use their school accounts which can be monitored by their teacher.

Students using a Google education account must acknowledge and agree to:

  • Communicate responsibly and respect each other’s ideas and opinions
  • Protect their own and other’s private online information
  • Give proper credit when using other’s work
  • Follow district and school expectations for appropriate behaviors, rules, and guidelines
  • Report any concerns to school officials, involving cyberbullying, unsafe internet practices, or any other technology-related concerns they may have

For resources about internet safety and cyberbullying, visit our district website at: https://www.edmonds.wednet.edu/Page/663

If you have any questions, please contact any of us listed below. To learn more specifically about how this will be used in your child’s classroom, please contact their teacher.


Sincerely,


Jack Sackett, Principal
