  • Dear Class of 2023, 

    (a note from the IT Department) 

    Congratulations, you're almost there!! I am writing to let you know that as the school year quickly comes to a close you should begin thinking about migrating any data you want to take with you after you graduate from Beacon High School.  
    Over the summer your account will be suspended and you will lose access to the BCSD GSuite for Education System including Gmail and Google Drive.  To help make the transition out of the Beacon City School District easier the Technology Department has included tips and instructions below to help make your transition out of the district easier.  
    You may want to consider posting an automated "vacation responder" message to your email account to let people know what your new email address will be once you leave the Beacon City School District.  This can be helpful if you are still expecting and/or receiving correspondence from colleges.
    You can also migrate your emails and drive files from your BCSD Google Account to a personal Google Account using the Google Takeout App.  You never know when your previous research, essay, or presentation may be needed during your future studies.  Instructions are below and also linked here.
    A reminder if you own documents for a student club, you might want to transfer ownership to another student. Instructions are also listed below and linked here
    On behalf of the Technology Department we wish you the best of luck on your future endeavors.  
    If you need assistance with anything please email: help@beaconk12.org

    Copy content from your school account to another account

    If you're using a Google Account through your school, you can copy and transfer your files to another Google Account. This process lets you:

    • Backup your files from time to time
    • Keep important files when you graduate, switch schools, or leave for another reason

    If your Google Account isn't through your school, you can download your data instead.

    If you get an error message, your school might not be able to use this tool yet. Please try again in a few weeks.

    What you can copy

    You can copy and transfer these kinds of files from your school account to another Google Account:

    • Email in Gmail (not contacts, chats, or tasks)
    • Documents that you own in Google Drive (except files in the "Google Photos" section of Drive)
    • Documents in My Drive

    The original files stay in your school account. Any changes you make to the copied files don't affect the originals.

    My Drive files that aren't copied

    Copy & transfer your files

    Each time you copy files from your school account, a new set of copies is created in your Google Account.

    Create an account

    If you haven't already, create a Google Account. Your new email address will be your username@gmail.com.

    Prepare your files

    To copy content that other people have shared with you, add those files to My Drive.

    Start the copy process

    1. On your school account, go to Transfer your content.
    2. Enter the email address of the Google Account where you want to copy your content.
    3. Select Get code.
    4. On your Google Account, check your Gmail inbox for a confirmation email from Google. In the email, select Get confirmation code. A new tab will open with a code.
    5. On your school account, go back to the "Transfer your content" page. Enter the code, then choose Verify.
    6. Choose the content you'd like to copy, then select Start transfer.

    Details about the copy process

    • The copy process usually happens within a few hours, but it can take up to a week.
    • Copied files might appear in batches on your Google Account during the copy process.
    • When your files are finished copying, you'll get an email at your Gmail address.

    Download files that aren't copied

    To save your content from other Google products, you can download your data.

    For example, you can download your Gmail contacts, your YouTube videos, and your photo albums in Google Photos.

    Change a file's owner

    If you're the owner of a file in Google Drive, you can transfer ownership.

    For example, if you'll graduate soon and you own documents for a student club, you might want to transfer ownership to another student.


    All the best,
