G Suite for Education
G Suite allows Monty Tech to provide communication and collaboration applications to our entire education community for free. All services are hosted on the Monty Tech School District G Suite domain and are available to students and staff via any computer and many mobile devices.

G Suite includes the following services:

Gmail - provides gigabytes of email storage, highly effective spam filtering and powerful search.
Calendar - allows easy coordination of work or class schedules, meetings, and events online.
Drive - allows users to create and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms, and drawings in real-time as well as upload and share any file type.

Other tools and add-ons may be made available to students in our domain. These tools are reviewed and selected by the District and Technology departments and educational teams and committees.
