The Mesa Unified School District will pilot an online program - Student MPS Connect - that includes e-mail, calendar, documents and spreadsheet programs in the fall.
The governing board learned about the plans during a study session Tuesday.
One advantage to the program, staff said, is students will be able to upload homework to teachers directly, decreasing the chances of spreading computer viruses. The program is Google based.
Mesa Academy for Advanced Studies will hold the trial in the fall, with plans to roll out to all secondary schools as soon as teachers and students can be trained.
