Free Microsoft Office for Students 

Digital productivity and creation skills are a key component of our students' college and career readiness and a strong focus for our staff and students. Microsoft is now offering the most used digital productivity suite in the world, Microsoft Office, free to our students at no cost to our families or Lakota Schools.

This will allow Lakota students, grades 2-12, to use a full version of Microsoft Office on up to 5 devices. Software versions include the latest version of Microsoft Office for PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android. This is a great complement to our Bring Your Own Technology initiative.

Please Note: Lakota Local Schools does not require or support installation or use of Microsoft Office. Please access Microsoft’s online resources for support.
