Going Google!

Guilderland Central School District is going  Google

For some of us, it’s tough… we’ve spent many years on GroupWise and now it is going away?  Yes, Gmail is now the official email platform of the Guilderland Central School District.  GroupWise will not exist after the end of September 2013.
The period between June and September will be the transition from the old to the new.  IT Services is going to do as much as possible to make that transition a smooth one.  However, this transition will require us all to learn new things and do a few things differently.
 Starting this Summer, GCSD will transition to Gmail.  The transition process will re direct email that you would normally receive in your GroupWise (.org) account to your Gmail account (.net)   

On July 12, 2013 e-mail addressed to will stop arriving at GroupWise and be automatically rerouted to Gmail.  Access to GroupWise will continue to the
end of September 2013 but it will no longer send and receive messages after July 12, 2013.
Access to Group Wise will be available online through webmail.

Here you will find information and how-tos to help you with the transition from GroupWise to Google Apps Gmail. Navigate through the tabs on the top of this page to find How-tos and help guides.
