Student Google Accounts

Policies in Vacaville Unified

Account creation and settings:

  • The VUSD Tech Department creates student Google accounts for all students in grades 1-12.
  • Usernames are district email addresses based on student id number and ending in @vacavilleusd.org
  • Passwords are given to the students and teachers at the beginning of the year; students in grades 6 and up are prompted to change the password when first logging in each year. As of Aug. 2017, students in grades 4 and up will also be allowed to change their passwords upon request. Other classes may do the same on request of the teacher.
  • Parents should keep a list of their students’ passwords so they may log in and monitor the account.

Account access:

All accounts, grades 1-12, have access to Google Drive for creating Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Drawings, as well as Google Classroom for collaborating with their teacher(s) and classmates.
