I'm investigating Google Apps for Schools and wondering if anyone is using this for the events calendars for their schools and district.
I would like for each school to have their own events calendar managed by someone at that school via their Google account or a dedicated "calendar" account. That calendar can then be embedded in the school's website for public consumption.
Then I'd like a district calendar that included events rolled up from each school as well as the ability to add district events. That district calendar would be shared via the district website for the public.
If anyone has done that, how did you structure it?
Did you use dedicated calendar accounts or did staff use their google apps account and were given permissions to edit the shared calendar?
Can events "roll up" from school calendars to the district calendar or do events need to be copied over from one calendar to another?
Can events be labeled on the district calendar via color code or some other method to easily distinguish between the different schools or does there need to be a manual solution like putting initials in the title of every event?
Thanks for your help. It looks like Google Apps has promise. Setting up a calendar would be a good way to get started.
