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 only.
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 Student-Parent Handbook Sign-Off Form.
The account naming convention will be: email@example.com. For example firstname.lastname@example.org. In the event that two or more students share a first and last name the student's middle initial will be inserted (e.g., email@example.com).
