Google Account Notification To Seniors

Our high school librarian assistant, Mrs. Fenendael, wrote a fantastic email to all seniors informing them of the deadline that is imposed for their school Google account to stay active. I used ifaketext to create the image at the left.  I know there are not many high school students that DON'T read a text message!

Hello Class of 2014

Congrats on your upcoming graduation.  We wanted to make you aware that as of July 1st, 2014 your current google account will be deactivated. There are steps you can take to transfer ownership of documents if you create another google account.

To those that are OWNERS of a document for a club, please make sure you share all documents with another student that will be here next year. In addition, we are recommending that you share documents with your club advisers.  The instructor or student that you share the document with will need to "make a copy". This will allow the new OWNER to have full access. Please talk to your club advisers or come to the HUB with further questions.

If you are unsure of how to share a document, here are further directions.  If you have an enormous amount of information, you may want to use Google Takeout.

You can also create an automatic message on your old/current Google email in case you need to get responses from people to indicate you are transitioning to a new account.  This automatic response will give them the new email address. This is especially helpful if you are working with colleges.  

Again, please let us know if we can be of any further assistance, best wishes for a BRIGHT future!

The HUB Staff
