All NSW Public Schools can now nominate someone to take on the role of Google Delegated Admin (GDA). The principal assigns this access via Manage Staff Access. Each school now has its own container in the Google Admin Console, with all staff and student accounts, and all of the school's Chromebooks. This allows for local management to:
- apply local settings for staff and students
- restore deleted files from a user's GDrive
- deploy Chrome extensions, configure printing and other settings for your DoE-enrolled Chromebooks.
Accessing the Google Admin Console is not for everyone. Schools will need a reason to want to do it and many smaller schools won’t need it at all. But for schools wanting more control over their Google Workspace and managed Chromebook settings, find out more about Google Delegated Admin to understand better if it’s what you need. Any school that chooses to NOT take up GDA functions will continue to have the same Google Workspace and Chromebook services as before.
