With the new school year now underway, the Technology Department is receiving many requests to have Google Apps accounts created for students and staff. We thought that this would be an excellent opportunity to remind you of the process for making these requests.
Firstly, we have received some requests from teachers and office administrative staff on where to find the forms for students and parents to give their consent. There are two documents that must be sent home. They can be found at the following links:
The detailed process for staff to follow when requesting student accounts was previously posted to the blog and is still available. You can look at the original posting for more information. The relevant information is found under Part 2 of the posting. It’s also important to note that there are two important changes to the information that has been posted there. In the original posting, requests were to be emailed to Nicole Kowalko. Please do not send your requests to Nicole anymore, as she has accepted a different position in the school district.
This year, we ask that you email your requests to Jennifer Mullen. Secondly, in the original posting, we promised a turn-around of 24 hours between the moment the accounts were requested, and when they were created. Since Help Desk is now staffed differently this year, we’ve had to increase this time to two business days (between request and creation).
