Use this tool to determine whether you should purchase using Google’s new pricing or legacy pricing.

Google is changing the way it prices Google Workspace for Education Plus (formerly known as G Suite for Education). Soon, they’ll charge per student license rather than per staff license.

OETC put together this calculator so you can figure out which pricing model is best for your district. OETC will offer the legacy pricing through mid-April.
