The majority of district staff have an account on Google Apps already set up for them when their account is created. The account has the same username and password as your district account, however, instead of "firstname.lastname@example.org" the address is "email@example.com".
If you try to login to Google with "firstname.lastname@example.org", it will cause problems. Not only will it fail, but trying to create that account will result in an account that works sometimes but not all of the time. DO NOT CREATE A NEW NSD.ORG ACCOUNT ON GOOGLE!
Instructions for logging in to Google with your district account are available in KB article 601.
You are still welcome to create a personal Google account using your own personal email account. That has nothing to do with your district account and will not affect it in any way.
