As of January 2015, Google Vault (formerly Postini) was made available to all Google Apps for Education customers. Formerly a paid service, Vault is now FREE for Educational institutions.
Google Vault is a e-discovery and archiving tool designed to help you retain district data. For public institutions, state and federal regulations require the retention of information for set period of time that varies by state. Vault will make you compliant with these regulations. Vault currently fully supports Gmail and Hangouts with partial support of Google Drive data.
During the 2015 Indiana Google Education summit I led a breakout session focused on the appropriate setup of Vault as well as using Google Vault to comply with Freedom of Information requests (FOIA), internal investigations (i.e. cyber bulling) or recovery of lost data.
The presentation below was captured using a Swivl camera. It's a long session, but you can skip to the parts that pertain to you by selecting any of the slides- the video will automatically jump to that point in the recording.
I have also embedded the original slide deck as well.
