Project Goals:
  • Enhance communication and collaboration with a cohesive email and collaboration platform for both staff and
  • students - a single tool set is the driving force
  • Remove current email/calendar redundancy & confusion
  • Access of information on any device, anytime, anywhere
  • Move from client/server based to cloud
Key Points:
  • Staff will maintain their @epsb.ca addresses.  This will become their Google account, and their
     @share.epsb.ca Documents, calendars, Groups, etc. will all be accessed with this account.
  • Students will continue to have @share.epsb.ca accounts
  • Existing mail (Inbox & Sent items), contacts and calendar data will be moved for staff through an automated process.
  • Staff will have the choice of how much of their local folder data (PST files) to move to their Google Apps Mail account.
  • If staff choose to migrate their local folders, all of the folders will remain intact (see details). 
  • Google Apps Mail is not GMail. There will be no advertising or data mining of the email by Google.
  • Microsoft Office will continue to be licensed. Microsoft Outlook will eventually be removed from staff computers.
