Are discounted versions of Microsoft Office available thru school?

Q1.  I’m looking to purchase Microsoft Office for our home –   does the district have any suggestions for where to buy?

First of all, we want families to recognize that students are NOT REQUIRED to purchase Microsoft Office for home usage.  There are several alternate options available…

Option #1)  Use the free online version of Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint that are available to students through the Microsoft service called Live@EDU.  For more information, visit:  http://wp.me/p1JF02-3t

Option #2)  OpenOffice is a free productivity software package that is compatible with Microsoft Office documents.  More information at http://www.openoffice.org

Can we purchase Microsoft Office at a discount through the school district or AEA?
No,  discounts are no longer available from Microsoft that cover K-12 students and famlies.

    Does Heartland still offer discounts on Microsoft Office products to students and staff? The link above doesn’t work.
