Google Apps for Education is a free service for Pleasanton school district students, teachers and staff. The cloud-based system allows students and teachers access to e-mail, calendars, documents, chat and more through the school district's unique domain.
The secure system allows students and teachers to work online from any computer or tech device. Documents can be shared and updated. A single document can be worked on by one person, two people or group of people -- all working on the same document. It's a fantastic way for students and teachers to collaborate on school projects.
Google Apps has been used by businesses, colleges and schools for years. Pleasanton is excited to offer this free cloud-based system to students.
