    As part of the Seattle Public Schools Enterprise agreement with Microsoft, eligible SPS students and employees have free access to download and install the latest, full version of Office Pro Plus, powered by Office 365, on up to five personal devices.

    This program is available for active SPS students and SPS staff. Note that this software will only work for as long as you are a student or staff member at SPS. For now, students in grades 6-12 will have access to download Office Pro Plus. Office Pro Plus for the younger grades will be available in the future.

    What do I need to do to get this service?

    Directions for getting the software can be found on the FAQ website.

    What is included?

    Students in grades 6-12 and employees may download and install the latest, full version of Office Pro Plus software on up to five of their personal devices (computers, tablets or phones) with Windows, iOS, or Android operating systems.

    When is support for the service available?

    • Employees and students downloading Office 365 Pro Plus are entitled to the same support options as other Microsoft customers purchasing software for home use, including free access to resources and newsgroups on the Microsoft support website and pay-per-use e-mail and telephone support.

    • Due to liability and the overwhelming number of variables related to home computer environments, TechLine is unable to assist with support of Office installed on personal computers at home.

    How long does it take to get the service?

    The service is automatically available as soon as the employee/student SPS network account is created.

    How do I change or stop the service?

    SPS employees have access to Office Pro Plus as long as they are an employee of SPS. Within 30 days of their departure, their software will enter a Reduced Functionality mode, which will give users read-only access to their Microsoft files. They will have the option to purchase Office Pro Plus on their own (at a monthly fee).

    SPS students have access to their Office Pro Plus services as long as they are a student of SPS. In November of each year, licenses will expire for students who are no longer enrolled in SPS. After that, they will have read-only access to their Microsoft files and will have the option to purchase the Office 365 Pro Plus on their own (at a monthly fee).

    How much does the service cost?

    There is no charge to our customers for this service.
