Simulating Walled Gardens with G Suite Sharing and Directory Settings

As I mentioned in a post several months ago, the school district I work for recently underwent an audit specifically focused towards G Suite domain configuration in a K-12 setting.  I would like to give a quick shout out to Amplified IT , it was a great experience to work with a company so familiar with the unique needs of an educational institution. As with the results and recommendations of any audit, there is a process for evaluating and prioritizing the remediation response.  A significant consideration in any school district is the ability to maintain safety for kids with the least possible adverse impact on the educational environment.  Below I will detail a couple specific changes made to our G Suite domain as part of our effort to simulate "walled gardens" for our younger students.  Please keep in mind, this is by NO MEANS an exhaustive list.
