Students in grades 6-12 have had restricted Office 365 email and G Suite accounts that only permit sending to and receiving from other HCPSS accounts.
Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, secondary students will have the ability to use their “@inst.hcpss.org” email account to send and receive email outside of HCPSS. They will also have the ability to share items (Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive) from their G Suite to outside HCPSS domains, or non-HCPSS accounts.
School librarians will include information and lessons about these changes during media orientation at the beginning of the school year. Students will learn how to access the email account, share and send information safely to users outside HCPSS, and maintain password security.
