Google Apps Admin Console Support

It is the responsibility of each school to manage their own Google Apps for Education console until a centralised instance is offered as part of ICON in 2016.  This is especially important for schools to be aware of as it controls email, calendars and cloud storage for staff and students.

For this to happen each school will need to designate an administrator who has can access the Google Admin console at admin.google.comThey will need to know your schools administrator password also.

If you do not know this account please contact David or Haiden on 5337 7110 for assistance.
