Frequently Asked Questions

What is this account for? Use your student account to sign in to Google (Classroom, Gmail, Drive, etc.) and Microsoft 365 (Teams, Word, PowerPoint, etc.) This account also works with Adobe Spark, Clever, EVERFI, Nearpod, Zoom, and a growing list of online learning tools.

What happened to accounts? The Department of Education has created accounts for every student and staff member, so schools no longer need to have separate accounts. Your DOE student account is used from Pre-K all the way through the end of high school. If you had a account, your Gmail and Drive files have been transferred to the DOE student account. Queens Tech email forwards automatically to this new address.

Where do I see my email? Students go to Gmail and sign in with the DOE student account username and password. School staff go to Outlook and sign in with the username and password. There is no longer Gmail for staff.
