My school (West Central Valley) converted to using Google 2 years ago. In fact starting in the Fall (2020) we will be going 1-1 Macbooks for the kids. Every student has a school issued email that we started at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. Having Gmail has been a very useful tool for us. We are able to send instructions to our students if they happen to be gone from school for a day. With this Covid-19 issue that we had, Having students have a school issued email was very helpful implementing our continue education plan for the month of May. I personally have found the Gmail app very helpful on my IPhone. I am able to answer emails quickly and at anytime of day/night.
