Seniors, Back Up Before You Leave!

It's here! Today is the graduating class of 2017's last official day of school at CCHS. It's one of those bittersweet type of days. Exciting for seniors to anticipate graduation, the senior all night party and to be moving on to the next phase and yet, sad to be leaving behind their high school years, teachers and perhaps some of their friends as they move on to colleges far apart from each other.

As seniors ready themselves to leave high school and move on to the rest of their life one of the last things they are thinking about is archiving their high school digital documents and projects.
Don't Let This Happen To You!
However, every fall we receive calls from last year's seniors asking for access to their Google Drive. If our I.T. department hasn't deleted their account we can usually accommodate their request but we can't guarantee this. If the account has been removed, the content will not be retrievable and the answer will be "No".

Don't let this happen to you! Luckily Google has provided a tool to allow you to take your stuff with you. Log into your school Google account and then navigate to Google Takeout. Select the Google tools that you want to archive (Drive, Contacts, Email, etc.) and Google will zip them up and send you a link to download to your computer or other storage device. Now when you need something from high school, you have it!

So, Congrats to the CCHS graduating class of 2017 and don't forget to take your stuff!
