Bye Bye School G-drive -if you are not returning

posted Jun 20, 2017, 9:39 AM by Mary Page   [ updated Jun 20, 2017, 10:03 AM ]

Students who are graduating and/or will not be returning to HDSB for the 2017-2018 School Year.

As of July 1, 2017 students who are not:

  • actively registered with HDSB (Summer School), or

  • Pre-Registered for the 2017-2018 School Year with HDSB


will lose their access to the HDSB Network & Halton Cloud / G Suite for Education applications and data.


Students who wish to retain their data can:

  • Transfer their data to a personal Google Account using Google Takeout Transfer Your Content - see Transfer their content

  • Archive their data using Google Takeout - The traditional Takeout is also available to create an archive of their data in G suite.


This will enable students to easily retain their email, essays, resumes, science projects and any other files stored on Google Drive before access has been removed to their HDSB account.


This must be completed by June 30, 2017.


Please distribute this communication within your site so Teachers can let their students know of these features before the end of the school year.


Thank you,


Jamie Sinclair
