Google Classroom is a content management system designed for schools that aims to streamline the actions of creating, distributing and grading assignments online. Google Classroom is available to Dracut Public School students, and faculty through username accounts. Classroom offers teachers and students a robust suite of productivity tools including Gmail, Docs, and Drive.
Student Gmail Accounts
Each student within the Dracut Public Schools District has a unique username and password that will give them access to posting and monitoring lessons, assignments and messages on the district’s DPS network. Student accounts can be accessed anywhere with an Internet connection. These accounts were intended solely for the use of research and academic enrichment. Google Apps for Education falls under the Dracut Public Schools Technology Acceptable Use Policy. Misuse of student accounts can result in loss of access as well as other disciplinary or legal action.
