Brush School District has created Google accounts for all K-12 students to allow for collaborative sharing using Google Apps for Education. These accounts will be used for school-related communication and projects only. However, email will be restricted to the Brush school domain. A student will not be able to correspond with aol, yahoo, gmail, etc. accounts, but only with staff and students within the district. The account naming convention will be firstname.lastname.20XX@student.brushschools.org. 20xx designates the students graduation year.
For example: email@example.com.
Brush Technology supports the use of Google accounts to enhance the teaching and learning process. All student.brushschools.org email accounts are housed on a Google mail server, thereby giving students access to Google Docs (word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation software). This also allows teachers and students to share information housed in these file areas with others.
Students must follow the Brush School District Internet, Digital Information and Communications Technologies Acceptable Use Policy. Access to and use of student accounts is a privilege and Brush Schools maintains the right to withdraw the access and use of an account when there is reason to believe that violations of the law or district policies have occurred. In such cases, the alleged violation will be thoroughly investigated.
The Brush School District does not guarantee the security of electronic files located on the Google system. Privacy will be maintained to the extent possible; however, system administrators may have to examine activities, files, and electronic mail to gather sufficient information to diagnose and correct problems with system software or hardware, as well as investigate any alleged misuse.
