Jersey CUSD No. 100 is converting to Google Apps for Education for teachers and students. This new system, powered by Google, will provide Gmail to our school, as well as a suite of other Google products such as Google Docs, Calendars and Sites that will enable us to better communicate, share, and collaborate. We will be joining over 8 million other students and teachers that are already using Google Apps at schools around the world.
We are excited to offer Google Apps as it represents an important step toward developing a 21st century approach to curriculum and learning. These tools will support the high levels of collaboration that are required in today’s classroom to prepare students with the communication and collaboration skills they’re going to need.
In conjunction with this conversion our school district e-mail addresses have changed to Gmail accounts. We are now utilizing the domain jersey100.org and the accounts are set-up based upon the employee’s first and last name. For example, John Smith’s address is now firstname.lastname@example.org Please reference the Staff Directory on the district’s home page for a full list of employee Gmail addresses.
We are excited to bring these tools to the district!
