What is a Google Apps for Education Student Account?
A Google Apps for Education (GAFE) student account allows you to access your learning within a secure online collaboration platform provided and managed by the School District. GAFE offers unlimited online file storage and is to be used for educational purposes along with other Google Apps tools. These tools are accessible from any device that has access to the internet.
If you are a student between Grade 9-12, student consent is required for a SD61 GAFE account. Please follow the instructions below to request a SD61 GAFE account.
