About Google School Directory Sync

With Google School Directory Sync you can automatically create Google Classroom classes and populate their roster using data from your student or management information system. You can also use School Directory Sync to add, modify, and delete users and groups. Your system data is never modified or compromised. School Directory Sync is a secure tool that helps you keep track of classes, users and groups.

You use the School Directory Sync Configuration Manager to customize synchronizations. You can perform test synchronizations to find what works best for your organization and then schedule synchronizations to occur when you need them.
