Gmail and G Suite for Education

 

G Suite for Education Migration

6/15/2020

Thank you for your patience last week as we migrated the RCS e-mail to the new RCS G Suite for Education environment.

Your account is ready to be used. To access Gmail and other G Suite for Education tools,  use the following steps:

  1. Open a Web browser (we recommend Google Chrome) and visit http://mail.google.com.
  2. Enter your current RCS e-mail address in the Sign In box and click Next.
  3. At the "Choose an Account" screen, click G Suite Account: An account owned by rcs.k12.in.us.
  4. Enter your RCS password. NOTE: All Gmail passwords must be 8 characters long. If your RCS password is a 6 character password, we’ve added two additional characters to your password. These characters are ** so just add those to the end of your password. For example, if your current RCS password is something like J4re9W, enter this instead: J4re9W**
  5. Click Next to access your Gmail account.
