Technology Tips for Parents and Students

You will need your Shiner ISD username and password to log in to your Google Classroom and other Google services. 
 
Remember, your Shiner ISD email address/Google login is:
 
your first name + the first letter of your last name + your 2 digit graduation year
      • for example, deshaunw21@student.shinerisd.net
 
your password is the first four letters of your last name + your 4 digit cafeteria code
      • for example, wats1234
 
Start with the Google Classroom Cheat Sheet for Students below, and explore the other links if you find yourself needing some extra help.  
Below, you'll find various help topics, broken up by device, software, or topic.  Check back often for new support, tips and tricks.  And if you're having trouble finding help, remember that Google is your friend!
