    GOOGLE: Setting up and accessing my Steilacoom Google Drive

    We use Google for a number of communication and collaboration tasks.  Before using your Steilacoom Google Drive or Applications, you must first change your password through a district computer (PC). This process won't work from a home or non-district computer.  Here are the steps to follow:

    1. Login to any DISTRICT PC (not from home or personal device) using existing username/password.  New staff will get their initial credentials from Sue Cabigting.

    2. press: ctrl + alt + delete

    3. At the Change Password prompt you will type in your old password and enter a new one (and verify new one).

    Once you have completed these steps, your district login and your Google login for SHSD will be the same.  You have to do these steps if you want access to shared docs, forms, etc in the district's Google Drive.

    If you lose your password or cannot log in to the network, contact Mark Martinez.

    Student Growth Percentiles (SGP)

     A student growth percentile (SGP) describes a student's growth compared to other students with similar prior test scores (their academic peers).  It is a number between 1 and 99, where higher numbers represent higher growth and lower numbers represent lower growth.  Each student with at least two consecutive years of Washington State Assessment scores, will receive a student growth percentile.  Click the link above to view the video "An Introduction to Student Growth Percentiles".
