Office 365 is a robust and fully encrypted e-mail program and offers a unified communications platform that includes live-chat and full featured video conferencing with screen sharing and audio. It also includes access to the full Microsoft Office productivity suite of applications including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote and Share Point. Additionally, it includes OneDrive which is a secure online document storage system. This personal storage space allows each user to easily transfer work from computer to computer or from home to school. Additional features will be rolled out as they become available.

A statewide Identity Management and Active Directory utilizing the Webtop User Management system has been implemented to facilitate account management.  Along with the afore mentioned features, all current students and staff also receive, free of charge, 5 licenses of the Microsoft productivity suite to be used on home computers.  Login information can be obtained by contacting the local district/school.
