Google Apps for Education

The School District of Rhinelander has established district Google Apps account for your son/daughter.  Google Apps is a set of online tools for communication, collaboration, time management, and document storage.  This Google Apps Suite which is provided by Google to the District at no cost, includes:

  • Google Drive: a word processing, spreadsheet, presentation and drawing program that allows multiuser access and editing
  • Calendar: a customizable calendar and to do list
  • Contacts: an address book
  • Gmail: a full functioning filtered email program

Google continues to add new tools and the District will evaluate each for its educational potential.

Our primary reasons for supplying these tools to students are:

  • To give our students practice in using current technology applications and tools
  • To give students the ability to work on common, no cost tools on their own documents both at school and outside of school
  • To facilitate paperless transfer of work between students and teachers
  • To provide adequate longterm storage space for student work
  • To help students work collaboratively, engage in peer editing of documents, and publish for a wider audience
  • To provide a digital environment where our students and teachers can work collaboratively

Email accounts have been set up so that students can communicate with their teachers and classmates for school projects and should be used appropriately. Email account's are actived for grade levels as appropriate and all accounts are filtered and managed by the school district.

The email account should not be used for the following:
** Personal Facebook or any other social media accounts
** Subscribing to other websites or promotions (Example: Xbox, iTunes,etc.)
** Shopping Sites (Example: Games, Music, etc)

Teachers will continue to review the District’s Acceptable Use Policy and Internet safety guidelines when they introduce these tools to students. Using online tools responsibly will be an important part of the learning experience.

All of these tools are housed on the Internet and can be accessed from any computer with internet access with a web browser.  No special software is required.  A shortcut to the Google log-in page can be found on the Technology, Student and Staff page.

Username:  Students regular network login name (lowercase) with (example:

Password:  Students regular network password

If you have questions about your student having access to this account, you may contact your child’s principal.
