School Year 2011-2012
Norwell Public Schools has created Google accounts for all K-12 students to
allow for collaborative sharing using Google Apps for Education. These
accounts will be used for school-related communication and projects
Accounts for K-5 students will have access to Google
applications only, and will not have access to email. Accounts for
students in grades 6-12 will have access to Google applications
including email. However, email will be restricted to the Norwell
Public Schools domain. A student will not be able to correspond with aol, yahoo, gmail, etc. accounts, but only with staff and students within Norwell Public Schools.
No student will be assigned an account without parental or guardian approval. Parents will be asked to provide consent for the use of the student accounts on the 2011-2012 Student-Parent Handbook Sign-Off Form.
The account naming convention will be: firstname.lastname@example.org. For example email@example.com. In the event that two or more students share a first and last name the student's middle initial will be inserted (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org).
