Google Apps for Education
Schools in Clearview will be using a new tool for learning this year called Google Apps for Education. This online resource provides a safe way for students and staff to connect, share content, access homework, participate in discussions, and receive class information. It will be managed by your child's teacher.
About Google Apps for Education (GAFE):
Clearview Public Schools provides access to Google Apps for Education accounts for staff and students in the Division. These secure, online applications allow staff and students to communicate and collaborate using Google powered email, calendars, document sharing, and websites. These applications are different from the public version of Google applications (such as Gmail). GAFE is managed by Clearview School Division. It does not include any advertising, and has more strict filtering and content controls.
Student data (student attendance, schedule, grades, etc.) are not stored on GAFE. Student files created using Google Apps for Education (e.g. essays, presentations, email, etc.) are stored on Google’s servers outside of the Division. Below you will find links to common questions about GAFE, as well as the GAFE agreement.
