Managing Your Google Groups

Google (email) Groups are built with their constituent (sub)groups and a small number of individuals (the fewer the better). Those constituent (sub)groups are made up of individual members.

One example:

  • All CERSD (top level)
    • ES Staff
    • ES Certificated
      • ES teachers, other certificated employees
    • ES Classified
      • ES paras, other classified employees
    • Individuals associated with the ES but not in any other ES Staff subgroup (custodians, nurses, etc)

Best practice: Manage (add/remove) members at the subgroup level, rather than at the top level. The higher levels should have minimal individual members. From the top level down, simplicity is key.
