at Exeter Township School District
We are excited to offer Google Apps as it represents an important step towards developing a 21st century approach to curriculum and learning. These tools will support the high levels of collaboration that are required in today’s classroom to prepare students with the communication and collaboration skills they’re going to need.Exeter students and teachers now have access to Google Apps for Education. This includes Google Drive, Docs, Email and Calendar. Google Apps gives students and teachers a range of online tools to enrich communication, content creation, and collaboration. These applications are managed and maintained by the Exeter Township School District and email is restricted to others with an Exeter account and select educational sites.
