Migrating from Microsoft Office to Google Apps

The Tech Department has decide, in efforts to conserve money and take advantage of products currently available, to use that the district will discontinue its subcription of Microsoft Office. The Google Suite which has Docs, Sheets, Slides, Mail is an excellent tool that is free to the district. We have a larger Google environment than in previous years which is the primary reason to discontinue the Office Subscription.

Microsoft Office 365 OWA A1 is a online or cloud package that is available to schools at no cost. There are users that may prefer Microsoft Office product so we have implemented Office 365 OWA as well to help ease the pains of transition. Teachers and staff will use their computer logins to access Office 365 via an internet browser similair to how a user would access the G-Suite Apps. All of the users previous files are still accessible and should not be affected. The only change is that the files will need to be open via the Office 365 OWA portal. Thank you!
