Just getting started with Microsoft365? Read below to find out how to get going.
MS365 for home use is available free of charge for all Issaquah School District staff and secondary students. With MS365, students and staff may download the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and much more on personal computers to take advantage of these tools at home.
To get Office, students and staff will need to do the following:
- Log in to Microsoft’s online portal here: https://portal.office.com/
- Students and staff use their email address (i.e. SmitJon16@issaquah.wednet.edu ) and regular network/Active Directory password
- Choose Work or School Account when given the choice.
- Download and install Microsoft Office 365/2013 onto your home computer – (with parent permission if a student.)
We are excited to support learning and growth through these powerful tools and encourage you to try them out.
If you are having problems with your password please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Please be aware that anytime you install software there is a risk that your computer will run slower or there could be more serious consequences such as needing to do complete re-installation of the OS and software. You would be wise to back up your computer completely. Please read through the following before proceeding.
