What are Google Apps for Education?
School District 69 (Qualicum) is excited to offer staff and students in Grade K - 12 a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) account. Google Apps for Education (GAFE) consists of the following tools: Classroom, Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Sites.
The use of the Google Apps for Education service is not an educational requirement for students. Students will not be obliged to use these digital tools, and all school activities that rely on the use of these digital tools must allow for and accept alternate and equivalent means of student participation.
Prior to use, students and parents must fill out the district 'Google Apps for Education' permission slip requesting parental consent. Please click on the link to download the 'GAFE Student Consent Letter'.
SD69 (Qualicum) wishes to thank the Yukon, Delta, Maple Ridge, Greater Victoria and other school districts for their collaboration and support in assisting with the completion of Privacy Impact Assessment and supporting documents.
