    HOW TO ACCESS YOUR SCHOOL ACCOUNT: 

    • In the upper right corner, login to your account using your provided username / password
      • This will be the same username / password that you will use to log you into your computer except at @effingham.k12.ga.us to the end of it.
          •   for example, if your name is:
            • first name: Mindy 
            • middle name: Ray
            • last name: Johnson
          • Your username will be as follows:
            • s.mrjohnson@effingham.k12.ga.us
          • Your password will be as follows:
            • this will be the same password you used to get on the school computer
            • [NOTE] see the media specialist at your base school if you need your password reset.
    [Keep in mind]
    If you change the password for one place (such as Google Drive) then it will change your password in all places (such as Gmail and your computer login).

    • Once logged in you'll notice two main sections on the left side:  "My Drive" and "Shared With Me"
      • "My Drive" are files you created and/or own
      • "Shared With Me" are files that someone else has shared with you
