The Google Apps for Education Consent Form and Contract Agreement for Wisconsin is now available for review. Google Apps normally requires a contract, but the DPI invested time to resolve potential contract issues at the state level so that any public, PK-12 educational institution can use Google Apps via a simple consent form. Wisconsin PK-12 educational institutions that are interested may review the agreement and sign and complete the consent form in order to join the Wisconsin DPI contract with Google for Google Apps for Education. For more information, visit our Deployment Resources or the Wisconsin DPI Google Apps page.
The Department of Public Instruction recently announced that the
State of Wisconsin has entered into an agreement to provide all PK-12 schools,
districts, and other public education agencies across the state with free
access to Google Apps for Education, a free suite of software that will help schools
free up funding and staff time and increase the use of collaboration and
technology in education. To use
the applications, schools only need to sign a half-page consent form. See the attached documents for additional information.
