Google has announced that it's changing Google Apps for Education to G Suite for Education. The basic functionality will remain the same but the change will bring additional features, convenience, and enhancements.
Clarke County Public Schools is an official Google Apps for Education partner. G Suite for Education is an integrated communication and collaboration solution, hosted by Google and managed by CCPS. G Suite for Education provides the ability for students, faculty and staff to communicate, store files and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in real time from school, work, or home, all within a secure online environment. Students and teachers can open and edit their documents quickly and interact via Google Classroom. G Suite for Education eliminates distractions such as USB keys, outdated file attachments, or confusing client software. G Suite for Education lets users be productive at school, home, and on a myriad of devices and operating systems. Google applications run in a web browser so students can work from any computer without having to purchase new software or hardware. Files stored on Google Drive are always accessible and backed-up online. The G Suite for Education platform is ideal for instructor and collaborator feedback.
Clarke County Public Schools is excited to offer network connectivity to students and staff who bring their own devices. Click here or more information.
