Google Classroom

Google Classroom is a new product in the suite of tools called Google Apps for Education. Classroom gives teachers a simple way to create, collect, grade, and return assignments paperlessly, using Google Apps. Teachers and students can access Docs, Sheets, Slides, and other Google Apps for Education tools directly from Classroom.

We encourage teachers to utilize this tool to help manage instruction in their classrooms. If you are a teacher and want to pursue using Google Classroom, go to http://classroom.google.com and use your DPS Google account. When you access Classroom for the first time scroll down the welcome page a bit and click the button that designates that you are a teacher.
