Google Classroom Help for Students and Parents


Students and Parents – we all will need to get creative about getting the students the help they may need to get up and running in Google Classroom and other Google applications because we can’t help in person.  Here are some ideas and options:

  • Ask Older Siblings for Help:  All 7th and 8th grade BACS students have been using Google Classroom for at least the last 7 months and could provide guidance.  ANC students also use Google Classroom and could be helpful.

  •  Watch a Helpful Video:  We have included a bunch of videos below that will walk you through different parts of the Google experience.  Look for one that might cover what you need or watch them all! 

  • Parents Ask Google Search a Question:  Try asking a question google search a question about Google Classroom like “How do I turn in an assignment in Google Classroom” and check the first couple options.  Its amazing how well this can work (sometimes). 

  • Contact Mrs. D: If students or parents are stuck and need personal help they should contact Laura D’Angelo.   Mrs. D. is waiting for your email at or a phone call.  Homeroom teachers will send you Mrs. D’s phone number.  We are also working on getting Mrs. D the ability to share screens to help support students.  Stay tuned for that.  For tech or Google Classroom challenges please don’t contact your homeroom teacher, instead contact Mrs. D.
