For Students - CBE Gmail


The CBE is pleased to begin a Gmail prototype with some schools September 2012. Learning Innovation has been investigating a new student e-mail system and after considering the available options, the CBE has decided to use Gmail. Gmail for students is part of the Google Apps for Education suite. This suite consists of collaborative tools bundled together for educational settings with an emphasis on providing a safe environment for K-12 students. The CBE will retain the same level of filtering as our current method which includes filtering all e-mails for appropriate content, use and profanity. This website will contain updated information on this initiative.
