What’s special about G Suite for Education?

G Suite for Education is a specially “packaged” version of the same Google tools an individual can have access to by simply signing up for an account: Gmail, Google Docs/Drive, Google Calendar, etc. Unlike the personal accounts, however, G Suite accounts are managed by the Board. This allows us to, among other things, set up accounts for all of our students and staff, control access for students, and leverage group features for collaboration within the district. It makes sharing within the district easier, while also making it easier to be open to the world, where appropriate. This level of management isn’t possible with individual, personal Google accounts.
