STUDENT GOOGLE ACCOUNTS
Students in Trussville City Schools are issued Google Accounts. Student Google Accounts allow students to use ChromeBooks, access Google Apps, and store and share work in their personal drives. Students can access their accounts from any computer anywhere, but knowing how to set this up may be challenging if you have never done this before. This tutorial will show you how to access your child's account and help you troubleshoot any issues you might have.
