GSuite Overview

What is GSuite?

Google Suite for Education (GSFE or G:Suite EDU) is a suite of tools that allows students and teachers to collaborate in real-time to create documents, presentations, surveys, spreadsheets, drawings and even websites. All tools are free, ad-free, reliable and secure. You can find more details about the tools we use on the Google Classroom or GSuite Tools Pages.

Why are we using it?

GSuite EDU provides the ability for students and teachers to communicate, store files and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from school or home, all within a secure online environment. It is important to remember an educational Google account is structured and managed differently than a “consumer” or “personal” Google account.
