• Microsoft Office - Personal Copy for Home Install

     
    There are two methods that you can install Microsoft Office on your home computer or personal device.
     
    You are able to download a free "work at home" copy of Office 365, however this software will go into reduced-functionality mode when you leave the school district or you do not connect to the internet every 30 days. What this means is that documents can be viewed, but it will not be possible to edit or create new documents. Additionally, online services associated with the school email address, for example, Office Online and OneDrive, will no longer work.
     
    The second way is to purchase a downloadable copy of Microsoft Office from the Microsoft Web store for $9.95. This copy will belong to you and you will not lose access when you leave the district. You can also purchase the Windows Operating System, as well as other discounted software. We will cover both options below.

    **Please note that Denton ISD is NOT able to provide support when installing this software on your personal device due to the massive number of unique, individual configurations. 

    1. Microsoft Office 365 license agreement

     
    Through the Microsoft Office 365 license agreement, Denton ISD students and staff have the opportunity to download and install Microsoft Office 365 at no cost. You will need to use your Denton ISD 365 account to download and install a full version of Microsoft Office  which includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and more.  Microsoft Office can be installed on up to 5 devices including Macs, Window based devices and mobile devices. The software will stay active as long as the student remains enrolled with Denton ISD and the staff member is employed with the district. After installation the computer will need to be connected to the internet every 30 days to verify eligibility for the program, though no action is needed other than connecting to the internet. Once you resign or leave the district, this software will no longer work. Follow the directions below if you want to proceed with the free version.
