Important Information about Senior Google Accounts

Hello ECHHS Seniors and Parents,

Over your years in the district, you may have accumulated a lot of work in your school Google account. We wanted to write a note to you about how to save your data from Google before you move on from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.

The IT department will delete accounts for students not enrolled in CHCCS (typically beginning the week after graduation), so it is important that you use the steps below beforel, June 18, 2021, in order to preserve your work. 

Once your school Google account has been deleted, the IT department will not be able to recover your data.

There are several methods to keep your work which are outlined on our Data Preservation website. They are as follows:

  • Migrate your Google Drive files and Email messages to a regular ( account
  • Download your data to a computer that you own
  • Transfer work that you own to another Google account manually

Please visit our Data Preservation site to learn more about these methods.  If you need any assistance in this process, please contact Jamie East (the school's Instructional Technology Facilitator) at

We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors!
