These accounts are for students only through their Georgetown ISD assigned Google account. Parents may request to be added to their student's individual classroom by emailing a request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the request and the name of the student whose account you would like to be added to. Multiple parent/guardian accounts may be applied to the student account.
