Need To Know
- We have removed Lastname for student names in Google to show just first initial of lastname.
- This is for YouTube, GMail, Google Classroom, etc.
- Veracross will still contain full last names.
- Please let us know if this causes any inconvenience.
Nice To Know
It has come to our attention that every student’s youtube channel now displays their firstname, lastname, and photo. This goes against our Online Guidelines that parents sign every year at re-enrollment time. These guidelines state that we will not put firstname, lastname and photo online.
So, to fix this, we changed last name from Lastname to show just first initial of lastname in Google for students (not staff) which will make it disappear from YouTube, GMail, Google Classroom, etc. So, in GMail, here is the effect on you if you search for a student’s email address.
Instead of seeing student lastnames, you will see this.
