Google Classroom, known as “Classroom,” is a web-based platform that is part of the suite of tools offered through Google Apps for Education. It integrates with other Google Apps such as Google Docs, Gmail, and Calendar.
Legacy Traditional Schools is implementing “Classroom” network-wide for the 2019-2020 school year. “Classroom” is replacing the Legacy class websites that parents could log into via their campus website.
Username: AZ(PowerSchool ID)@legacystudent.org
Password: (Student’s date of birth in MonthDayYear format) MMDDYYYY
For example, if your child’s birthday is July 16, 2009, the password is “07162009”.
In order to access “Classroom,” all Legacy students have been issued a Legacy Traditional Schools Classroom student account.
Students will use their Legacy Traditional Schools account to log into Classroom and access the tools and resources that are available. Parents, within the first few days of school, will receive a message from their child’s teacher(s) inviting them to join the “Classroom.” Once parents have joined the “Classroom,” they will be able to sign up for updates on their child’s activity.
