Message to Families About Google Meet
Dear North Olmsted Families,
 
As we updated you earlier this week, we know schools will remain closed through Friday, May 1st.  We appreciate all you are doing to support your child in their learning.  This is a difficult situation for everyone and we appreciate your continued partnership and patience as we work to continue your children’s education through online/eLearning. We wanted to provide you an update on a technology tool the district will be using so teachers can connect with students.

Google Meet – Connecting with Students

The North Olmsted City School District is a Google for Education District, therefore all of our students and staff have Google Accounts. Our teachers have been engaging in professional learning to enhance support for student learning using Google Classroom and Google Meet. Google meet is a video conferencing app that will allow teachers to “Meet” with their students.  It is an application that is part of our Google for Education G-Suit and will be enabled as an optional tool for teachers to use with students this afternoon. 

The safety and security of our students and teachers in the online environment is a top priority for the district.  Teachers that choose to use Google Meet to connect with students will be following specific safety and security guidelines to keep students safe while “meeting” with students.  We also have provided expectations for student use of Google Meet can be found by clicking here.  The use of Google Meet is optional for both teachers and students.  All Google Meets will be initiated by teachers; students cannot initiate a Google Meet.

We will be providing our families another update early next week as we prepare for online/eLearning for after Spring Break. As always, we are here to support our students and families.  We encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher or principal with any questions you may have. Again, thank you for your continued support, flexibility, and patience.

Sincerely,

The North Olmsted City School District
