Microsoft Office 365
- May 1, 2019
Monroe City Schools is the first system in north Louisiana to offer all of its students and faculty Microsoft Office 365 for free. Each license allows the user to either work online or install the software on a combination of up to 10 devices. Each license allows access to the typical Microsoft Office products: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. In addition, users now have access to the newest features, such as Delve, Sway, Video, and Sites.
One key feature is the expanded version of One Note, which we are encouraging teachers and students to use to create a truly online, collaborative environment. In order to meet the requirements of the law, the features of Office 365 are filtered by a human monitoring system to search for inappropriate material, profanity, threats, or other material deemed harmful. The system then alerts one of the human contacts for the district for further clarification 24/7. The system is thorough and very efficient.
MCS has a training site with informational video and documents available HERE. On-site trainings are being conducted throughout the district and at the MCS Technology Center. Watch the MCS Homepage CourseWhere for more information!
