The IT staff has deployed Google Docs for Grades 6-8 via a district Google portal. This allows student and staff to create, share and distribute files and projects over the internet. The portal offers access to the following Google tools:
  • Documents (Word)
  • Spreadsheets (Excel)
  • Presentations (PowerPoint)
  • Sites (web site tools)
These tools can be accessed from any computer at school or at home with internet access, thus allowing students and staff to collaborate on projects individually or in a group.

The goal is to incorporate this amassing online resource to Grades 9-12 next year.
