Microsoft Office 365 accounts are available to secondary school students and all staff at the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board. Office 365 brings many advantages to students and staff. As a web-based application, Office 365 only requires an internet connection and web browser, meaning staff and students can access their email and files at any time, from anywhere, on any device.
Office 365 is a cloud-based service that allows students and staff the ability to connect, communicate and collaborate from school, the office, home or a mobile device. All you have to do is login with your KPRDSB network username and password credentials.
In addition to email (Outlook), calendar and contacts (People), the Office 365 online collaboration suite also provides access to web applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote) and document storage (OneDrive for Business).
