Logging in to your G Suite Account 

1) From any device other than a Chromebook, you can login to your G Suite account by going to http://google.wrdsb.ca and using your PAL / School Connect login.

2) When logging in on a Chromebook, you will be asked for an email address rather than a username. Below is the format of the G Suite email addresses for teachers and students.

Teachers:
Password: PAL

Students:
Password: PAL


Passwords

It is important to create unique passwords for PAL accounts.  Usernames are public and can be found when a document is shared.  If passwords are identical (1234, abcd, room1, ect.) it means that all students potentially have access to each other's accounts.
