All current TUSD employees are able to sign on to the Office 365 online suite of applications as well as download Office 2016 applications on up to 5 personal devices.

  • Familiarity - You're already using Office applications, so Office 365 applications will be familiar

  • Convenience - Move your files to OneDrive and you can access them anytime, anywhere as well

Office 365 Online v. Office 365 Desktop

If you log in to Office 365 and start using an application, you might notice some minor limitations in functionality. If you need that functionality, switch to the Office 365 desktop version of the application. On district computers, do not click the Install Office button in the Office 365 dashboard.
