Google Workspace for Education
We provide a district-managed Google Workspace for Education account to each student and teacher to use for educational purposes. Your child’s Laveen Google Workspace account will give them access to all of Google’s core educational tools. These tools include; Classroom, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Drive. Browse our Google Workspace for Education guides below:
Did you know that students also have access to electronic editions of Laveen’s adopted curriculum along with traditional print resources? We encourage parents to log in alongside their children and explore the digital curriculum.
Remember, Laveen uses Google as a single sign-on option, so all your child’s digital resources are linked to their Laveen student account. Single sign-on allows for students to use one account to log in to multiple platforms.
Check out our customized parent guides below for each of our digital platforms.

Approved Educational Apps
In addition to our adopted curriculum, teachers also implement technology through the use of educational apps. A complete list of these district-approved apps can be found on the Laveen Authorized Educational Media list.
If you or your child experience issues with our digital platforms, get help by completing a Parent Helpdesk ticket. Once you complete the helpdesk form, tickets are generated and sent to the computer technician at your child’s school. Access the Parent Helpdesk by clicking on the Parent tab on any Laveen School’s website or this direct link.
What is digital citizenship?
Digital citizenship is considered the norm of appropriate and responsible technology use. Digital citizenship is an ongoing process that we, the LESD staff, must teach in all grade levels to promote safe, legal, and ethical uses of student technology. Here in Laveen, we believe that educating students about digital citizenship and appropriate technology use are essential components of integrating technology successfully.
There are seven different concepts that Laveen students will learn about during their exposure to Digital Citizenship. These include:
- Media Balance and Well-Being
- Privacy and Security
- Digital Footprint and Identity
- Cyberbullying, Digital Drama and Hate Speech
- News and Media Literacy
- Relationships and Communication
- Student Technology and Student Safety
