OCDSB Account Backup

OCDSB Account Backup
Posted on 05/28/2024
If you are a student leaving the OCDSB in June 2024, we are sorry to see you go.

Once a student leaves the OCDSB, the student gmail account becomes unavailable with 24 hours after being demitted.

Please note!

After a student is demitted from the OCDSB, students will not be able to access their email, projects or files. The school, nor the board cannot enable these accounts as this process is automated and tied to their enrolment status.

Please remember to backup your OCDSB google drive using the following instructions before June 28, 2024:

As a best practice, you should not use your school email address for personal use, including receiving pay stubs, applying for university or colleges or signing up for personal accounts. If this has already been done, please provide those parties with a personal email address.

If you are not returning for the next semester, please make sure you have done the following before the last day of the term:

Remove any files you wish to keep from the OCDSB Google and Windows drives. This may include: resumes, job applications, government documents, projects to be used in your portfolio for post secondary education, etc.

To save your data on your hard drive: Saving Your Google Content - For Students

To transfer data from OCDSB account to personal Account: Taking Gmail and Google Drive Files with you When you Graduate or Leave the OCDSB

Ensure your OCDSB email account is NOT the primary email account on your mobile device.

Sign up to any external accounts and services with your personal email address. (This can include gaming sites, web services, Youtube, online accounts). If you have already registered to these sites with your OCDSB accounts, transfer them to a personal email account (if possible), or create a new account.

Apply for jobs, colleges and universities with a personal email account.

Redirect any personal verification codes to a personal email address or your phone.

Ensure your employer has a personal email for you. Your pay stubs and employment information should not be directed to your school account.

⮞ students should not use their school email address for any correspondence they will need once they leave - bursaries, scholarship applications, university applications, employment etc. should be completed using a personal email address.

The student cannot use their OCDSB account to enroll in out-of-board summer school. After they are no longer an OCDSB student, they will not have access to Google or the VLE. If they are attempting to enroll in eLearning, they would enroll as a student in the board offering the course, and receive an account from that district. Eg. a graduating OCDSB student needing a summer school course offered at Peel, would enroll directly with Peel, and become a Peel student for that course (rather than being a shared student).

If you experience any difficulty transferring your account, please contact a teacher or administrator at your school as soon as possible to assist.

Hope this helps. All the best in your future endeavors.

Please disregard this message if you are coming back to the OCDSB in September 2024.
