Students often ask why they can't just use their regular GMail account. This is for many reasons, some of which include:
a) It is important to keep a separation between work/school and personal documents. Students should value their privacy, and their personal work should be kept well away from anywhere that an employer or teacher might possibly have access to it. The more barriers between their files and someone else, the safer their information will be. An entirely new account is a good way to prevent accidentally sharing personal information with others.
b) Some of the software has been set up to only interact with deltalearns accounts which are handed out by the school district. This prevents unwanted individuals from gaining access to students through electronic communications and reduces the chance of fraudulent acitivity that could be of a damaging nature to students.
