With Google Sites, you can easily specify who has access to your site, but you can also give visitors different levels of access to parts of your site. For example, you can create a class website students can view with a page that functions as a student wiki space that students can edit.sharing permissions

First: Share Site Overall

  1. be sure you are signed in to your site at
  2. in the top right corner, click on  Share 
  3. in the Add People box (bottom), enter the email addresses of those you want to share the site with
  4. click on Can edit and, if you want those you added in step #3 to have only View access to the site, change to Can view 
  5. click Share and save

Second: Page-Level Permissions

  1. click on Enable page-level permissions
  2. in the pop-up, again click Enable page-level permissions 
    page level permissions
  3. in the page tree that appears on the left, click on the page you'd like to give site viewers a different level of access to, (in the image above, I select Announcements)
  4. to the right click on Change
  5. in the Permissions pop-up, select Use custom permissions
  6. click Save
  7. to the right of the users you'd like to change access for, click the drop down to (Can view in the image above), and select the appropriate level of access you'd like to give, perhaps Can edit 
  8. click Save changes

Remember that to add additional users, be sure to first add them to the site (see above, Share Site Overall) before changing page-level permissions for that person.
