Summer 2018: Switching from Microsoft to Google


Migration
In the summer of 2018, the district will be switching its email and calendar services from Microsoft's Outlook and Exchange to Google's Gmail and Google Calendar.

Existing Office 2010 applications like Word, Powerpoint, and Excel will still be available on staff desktop computers, with upgrades to Office 2016 applications in business computing labs and some offices when required. 

However, we urge all district staff to begin using Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets since those are fully compatible with the Chromebooks which have been distributed to all certified staff and will be used by all secondary students in the coming years.
