Google Apps Access
Every student in the Fort Zumwalt School District, Grades K-12, is provided access to a Google Apps account maintained by the district. Even though they have Gmail accounts, their ability to email outside of the district is extremely limited to reduce spam/unwanted messages and encourage the educational functionality of the system. In addition, we only turn on Google Apps that are considered appropriate for educational use, through the collaboration of the Technology and Curriculum departments. The following Google Apps are available to all students as part of this program:
Note: Gmail access for students is limited compared to a traditional email experience. Students can only send/receive email with domains the district has pre-approved. For example, students can communicate with District Faculty and receive a login EMail from our textbook vendors, but they will not be able to interact with users at public EMail addresses like @yahoo.com or @charter.net. We understand this limits their ability to directly email with parents, however this feature is in place to protect our students and their privacy.
