Welcome to the HPS site for Google Apps. This site was designed to inform our community how the District is leveraging Google Apps for Education to help our students collaborate and communicate their learning.

We take a scaffolded approach to rolling out these educational tools from Kindergarten through High School, so students will learn how to productively and responsibly engage in the digital world.
