- Maybe you are a high school senior or a college student and you are graduating.
- Or perhaps you are a student who is moving to a new school.
- You might be a teacher who is taking a job at a new school district.
- Or maybe you are an educator who is retiring after many years of service.
In each situation it is very possible you may have a Google account. G Suite may be used at your high school, your college, and any one of your jobs.
So what happens to your Google account when you graduate high school, graduate college, move from one job to another, and eventually retire? You will have built up years of emails, documents, slideshows, and much more. Is there an easy way to take all those files and all that data with you? What would be great would be a simple tool to copy all of your files to a different Google account (such as your personal Gmail account).
Well thankfully we have that with Google Takeout for Schools. This is a very simple and free tool that will copy the emails and Drive files from your school account over to either a personal Gmail account or another G Suite for Education account. See below for a video demonstrating all the steps, as well as written direction on the process.
