Note to Parents and Students
This provides students access to the commercially available Microsoft software products. The software is the same Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other Office programs similar to what you can buy from your local retail store. As such, the district’s content filters and Internet security services are not associated with your home computers or personal devices.
Please note that WS/FCS is providing the latest version of Microsoft Office to align with the certification training available to our students. At this time the latest versions for the certification is Office 2013 for Windows computers. When you are at home, what you install on your Windows computer will not have the calendar year, and will automatically update to the latest version. If you are using a Mac at home the current version is Office for Mac 2011.
Who is eligible?
Any student whose primary affiliation is "student."
What happens when a student graduates or withdraws from WS/FCS?
Once a student has left the district, their Microsoft Office ProPlus subscription will end. Students may enroll in other available consumer or commercial offers. Many colleges have the same availability for students to get Microsoft Office while a student at the college.
What software can the student download?
Eligible students are able to download Microsoft Office ProPlus applications on up to 5 PCs or Macs, and up to 5 tablets, including iPads. These applications include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Lync, OneNote*, Access*, and Publisher*.
*Publisher and Access available on PCs only, OneNote is available for download for other platforms.
