To improve account security and device management, all district-issued Chromebooks will be restricted to district G Suite for Education accounts as of February 1, 2018.

Students and staff will no longer be able to login to a district-issued Chromebook using a personal Google account. They will need to always login with a district bps-ok.org account.
  • Staff accounts are username@bps-ok.org
  • Students' district accounts are username@stu.bps-ok.org
Staff members can still manually share files across personal and district accounts. However, files stored in a student's personal Google account, rather than in the student's district account, will no longer be available on district-issued Chromebooks.

Google Drive Files

If staff members have stored files in a personal Google Drive which they wish to copy to their district MyDrive for direct access on a Chromebook, rather than sharing them from their personal account, see these instructions on moving Drive files from a personal to a district account

Students must use the above instructions to retain Chromebook access to any files they have stored in personal accounts.

Email, Contacts, and Calendar

Staff members will still use the Outlook Web App to access their email on a Chromebook and can set up Exchange Server accounts on other mobile devices. See these instructions.

Students can use these Gmail import instructions to import email, contacts, or calendar events into their district Gmail accounts.
