Beginning with the 2015-16 school-year, all Grade 2-12 students will be eligible for Google Apps for Education accounts. The District's Google Apps parental consent form (refer to link below) is designed to authorize student use throughout their schooling at Hopkinton Public Schools. This multi-year consent form allows students to benefit from the increasing capabilities of Google Apps while assuming greater responsibilities in the digital realm as they move up in grade level in our schools. Please be aware that parents may opt their children out of the Google Apps initiative at any point in this progression. The District's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), Student Technology Empowerment Pathway (STEP), and digital citizenship and literacy curriculum in tandem with parental guidance will lay the groundwork for student success.
To complete the Google Apps form you will need a Schoolwires account. If you have already signed up for Email communications an account has been created for you and the credentials sent to you via email. To create an account follow these directions: How to Register for a Schoolwires Account
