SB automatically creates email accounts for 6 - 12th grade students
(roughly 1500 students give/take a few hundred). However, we only allow
in-domain access to that email in grades 6 - 8. In grades 9-12 we will
allow external-domain access only with parental permission or by student
request it at age 18. We keeping kicking around the idea of k-12 email
(internal only, external only 9-12 and only with parent permission), but
we haven't gotten there yet.
In Exchange (or even GroupWise if you are using that) setting up
internal vs. external email is a snap. Has anyone done this with gApps
or Live@Edu? If so, how did you set it up I don't see options like this
in the admin CP.

This has been our solution as well ("dummy" accounts for web 2.0
applications), although we are strategizing about how to move toward
email for our older students (7th/8th). IMHO there is a lot of
groundwork to do, but I am seeing that if we get younger students
(3rd/4th) started in guided, self-contained environments we have some
great opportunities to address "digital citizenship." This year we have
solidified some guidelines for implementation of web 2.0 tools and are
beginning to draft an online "code of ethics" for our students. I agree
with those who would like email for their students, but would like to
have guidelines and instruction in place before we go there.

federal regulations require that you destroy this email without
