Office 365

 Office 365 is Microsoft's online collaboration and office suite. Staff e-mail is being migrated to Exchange Online to provide increased reliability, more features and e-mail space, and cost savings.
  Office 365 will be available to staff and students.  Students will not have e-mail in Office 365 but will continue to use Google Apps/G Suite for e-mail.  Office 365 is not intended to replace the District's use of Google Apps for Education, but is available as another option to use if desired.
