WISD has Google Apps for Education available for all Agency staff!

The Technology department has created a Google Apps account for each staff member. This means you now have both an Office365 and Gmail account. This will allow you to function within Google Apps for education with your Gmail account safely and securely, in addition to using the Microsoft office suite and outlook through your Office 365 account.

Basic Account Information: 

  • Both accounts have the same login ID (first initial + last name)
  • Your WISD Office 365 account ends with the domain
  • Your WISD Agency Gmail account ends with the domain
