Back To School 2016 Information

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As part of our educational program, students in grades 3-12 will be provided with GoogleApps accounts. This means our students will have access to the suite of applications provided by Google, including e-mail, word processing, presentation, and spreadsheet tools. The purpose of the account is to provide students with software for collaboration and learning through the use of technology. The suite of applications includes, but is not limited to: GMail, Google Docs, Google Sites, Google Sites, Google Groups, and Google Talk.

Your son or daughter will have access to this account, its applications, and e-mail address both on and off campus. Upon request, you may also have access to this account. If you object to your child having access to any whole or part of the GoogleApps suite, you must file a written objection. Please address written objections to: the Office of Educational Technology, Fox Chapel Area School District, 611 Field Club Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15238. All written objections must be filed with the office of educational technology by Friday, September 4, 2015. If you do not file a written objection, your silence will serve as implied consent.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please call the school district's office of educational technology at 412/967-2588.
