Microsoft Office 365

  • Microsoft Office 365 Overview:

    The Gates Chili Central School District is excited to implement the use of Microsoft Office 365 for students in grades 3-12. Office 365 Education is a collection of services that give students a learning platform in the cloud that allows them to create and collaborate on documents wherever they are and on any Internet-capable device. The Office 365 account gives our students access to:

    • OneDrive storage (1TB)
    • Outlook (email)
    • Microsoft Word Online
    • Microsoft Excel Online
    • Microsoft PowerPoint Online 
    • Microsoft OneNote Online

    The Office 365 experience will foster collaboration and communication between our students and teachers and allows access from anywhere to continue their learning and creating. Our teachers, administrators, and staff will leverage the use of this technology to build essential skills and model appropriate use for our students.
