G Suite for Education

June 2018, G Suite for Education (GSfE) became available for free to homeschool co-ops. Co-ops may receive a code to get this setup for FREE through MATCH.

To be eligible, co-ops must meet the eligibility criteria for the program with Google and MATCH.

Co-ops must be:

  • In Missouri
  • Must have a domain name
  • The leader must be a MATCH member (due to this being new and short notice we are waiving membership fees until October 1, 2018).
  • MATCH is a strong advocate for the privacy rights of homeschool families. We believe that families should do their own research on the privacy standards of any program before sharing their child's information online. It is important that co-op leaders remember that as with all free programs, the FREE offer can cease to exist at any time.

    Read Google's Privacy and Security policy on their website.

    Step One: Eligibility
    Eligible for GSfE:

  • Co-ops

  • What is a Co-op?

    A homeschool co-op is a group of families who meet together and work cooperatively to achieve common goals. ... Activities and classes that are part of a co-op may be led by parents, or the parents may chip in to pay all or some of the teachers and activity leaders.

    More information about the G Suite for Education FAQ

    Google requires that a co-op own a domain for establishing a G Suite account.

    Not Eligible for GSfE:

  • Single Family
  • Support Groups (not co-ops)

  • For those that are not eligible, such as individual families, you can use your personal Google accounts to use Classroom and other products, and you can also set up kid accounts for your children.

    Step Two: Request a Code

    Each code must be generated individually. You should receive a code from MATCH within 48 hours of submitting this form.

    Please fill out this form entirely and submit it. The membership fee will be optional until October 1, 2018.

    Co-op Annual Membership Fee: $15 for first year and $10/yr after that.
