Why Google

Why Google?


Google Apps in Education offered the services we needed for our staff: web sites, email, online collaboration with google docs -- all free for education.  We were able to create a public presence about the school for the community and a private community for students.  The only cost is for Postini security backup for email as required by law; schools receive a 66% discount, but it is still expensive.  However, that archiving price must be paid for no matter what system we use. The low maintenance, free services offered by Google help us create a collaborative community for the school and our school community. Thank you, Google!
