Installing Office365 for Home Use


District 11 Students and Staff have the ability to install a free version of Office 365 on their home computers or devices through our agreement with Microsoft. To do so, please watch the video, or follow the instructions below, to be guided step-by-step through the process. You only get FIVE chances to install office on personal devices.
