Google Classroom Support

Google Classroom - Guardian View

When logged into Google Classroom, students can collaborate with their peers and teachers. Google Classroom offers a digital safe space for students to view class announcements, access posted course content, view posted assignments, and turn in completed work. Only authorized users (students, teachers, and other designated staff members) can have access to a Google Classroom. Google users outside the Sweetwater Union High School District network are not granted permission to any SUHSD Google Classroom.

Parents can access their child’s teachers’ Google Classroom in one of the following ways:

  1. From the school issued device, ask the student to login and launch the Google Classroom App. Please note that any activity in Google Classroom is documented under the student’s login and it would be inappropriate for a parent to communicate with the teacher or other students in Google Classroom. Parents should use their personal email to digitally communicate with the teacher.

  2. From any computer with internet access, click this link and have the student login with their Google Apps for education username and password. Please note that any activity in Google Classroom is documented under the student’s login.

  3. As a guardian, you may receive and accept an email invitation before you can receive email summaries. Only teachers and administrators from your student’s school can send these invitations. If you do not automatically receive an email invitation within the first couple of days of instruction to join your student's Google Classroom, you may email the teacher and ask them to send you a guardian invite.

    1. The teacher or administrator emails you an invitation for a particular student.

    2. The teacher or administrator can send the invitation to any email address.

    3. In your email program, open your email invitation.

    4. Click Accept.
