G Suite for Education

More tools means more time!

Beginning in June 2018, G Suite for Education (GSfE), a collection of tools to develop critical thinking and communication skills, collaboration and creativity, became available for free to homeschool co-ops. Co-ops may gain access to the program by receiving a code from a participating homeschool association. Homeschoolers of Maine is able to assist you in gaining access to GSfE.
