Productivity and Collaboration Suites

Lakota provides our students and staff both Microsoft Office 365 and Google G Suite. Proficiency in both productivity and collaboration suites will benefit out students in their future. Both web-based services are integrated into our Learning Management System, Canvas, and can be accessed through OneLogin.

Lakota students in grades 2-12 can click here for a free installable version of Microsoft Office for personal devices.
