Staff Email Address Policy
Hi Edugeekers, I'm looking for some opinions.
As part of my project to improve remote access to resources for students at our school I'm looking to migrate them away from RM Easymail into our Live@Edu solution.
However SMT are reluctant to allow this to happen as students (and therefore parents) would then be able to see our Staff members email addresses - we have had problems in the past with parents getting hold of email addresses of senior leaders and going to them directly with problems that should be address to tutors first (because of the nature of the type of students we have here this could be a problem)
I'm in the camp of why shouldn't they know them?
I don't really want to put them on a separate domain as this would create some overheads (another FIM installation for syncing accounts?). Students already have access to google apps using our primary domain name, and I want them to continue to only have a single login for everything - I really think this is key to having a coherant 'cloud' strategy.
SSO with skydrive would also be a big plus for our students - our storage space is quite limited here.
What are your thoughts?
