Student Google Account Names Changed to Student ID Numbers

Student Google account names have been changed to match their SD61 student number. This change was made for data privacy, and systems integration reasons. Note the following:

  • Students will now log into Chromebooks, Chrome browsers and all Google services using their student number
  • Students will still see all of their files and existing group memberships, assignments, shared documents, etc.
  • Email sent to the student’s previous address will be automatically forwarded to their new address
  • Staff and students can still search for students using the student’s real name (i.e. no need to search by student number)
