We will be using Google docs and Google classroom this year. All students have a DPS Google account, and will need to use that account for creating, sharing, and submitting assignments. This website will also be used to post resources.

Many of the documents and forms used in this class will have been created using Google drive. In order to open those forms and documents, students will need to open their Google accounts. If you have trouble opening a form or document, check that you are logged into your Google account, and then go to the form
    • Student Google Apps login directions:
      • Go to http://googlemail.dpsk12.net and log in.
      • Students’ usernames: Their six-digit student ID number.
      • Passwords default: Birthday as an 8 digit mmddyyyy number (e.g., 01052007 = January 5, 2007)
