Using the 'How I get home from school' form

Here are the steps on how to use the digital 'How I get home from school' form at the start of the school year.

First, go to the Google Forms template gallery here:  https://docs.google.com/forms/u/0/?tgif=d&ftv=1

Select the 'How I get home from school' form.  This will make a copy of the form in your personal Google Drive.

After the form opens, click the gear icon in the top right of the window.

Uncheck the option 'Restrict to users in Spring Lake Public Schools'.  Select SAVE at the bottom.

Copy a list of your parent emails.  Steps can be found here:  http://helpdesk.springlakeschools.org/home/technology/powerteacher-pro/how-to-email-parents-for-a-class

Select the Send button.  Right-click (press and hold on iPad) and paste the list of parent emails into the TO field.

NOTE:  Parents will not see each other's email addresses.  Google sends individual messages to each address.  You can send this to yourself and a peer first as a test if you want to review the experience.

Personalize the Subject and Message fields so the parents are comfortable that the message is not SPAM.

When ready, select the SEND button.

This is the message parent's receive.

As parents fill out the form, you can track the progress in the Responses section of the form.

You can view the responses by either selecting the INDIVIDUAL button or selecting the green spreadsheet icon and choosing 'Create a new spreadsheet'.

You can return to your form and responses at any time by going to Google Drive and double clicking on the 'How I get home from school' form.
