Graham County Schools & Microsoft

In an effort to help prepare students for the technology skills required to be college and career ready, Graham County Schools (GCS) has partnered with Microsoft Corporation to bring Microsoft’s Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) and Microsoft Office 365 Education (Student Advantage) to all GCS staff and students. Microsoft Office 365 Education, an always-up-to-date cloud productivity service, is currently used by 110 million students, faculty and staff around the world. Office 365 Education enables students to communicate and collaborate more efficiently, access assignments in shared workspaces, and have familiar Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel anywhere, across virtually any device. 

Microsoft Office 365 Education (Student Advantage) includes all the familiar and full Office applications — locally installed on up to five devices and available offline. When a school combines Student Advantage with Microsoft’s other cloud services, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Lync Online, all available free through Office 365 Education, students have access to the same set of gold-standard productivity tools and services used by Fortune 500 companies all over the world. 

“Students use Office every day for school work and activities that are most important to them. Office not only helps students stays organized and get their work done today but at the same time develops skills that will be required when they enter the work force. In fact, no other software or services show up in the top 20 most important skills identified in the research report,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Worldwide Public Sector Education at Microsoft. “We are thrilled to offer Student Advantage to schools across the globe so students have access to the latest, most up-to-date version of the world’s leading set of productivity tools in order to give them a competitive advantage when entering the workforce.” 

Nearly 98 percent of students using productivity software currently use Office. Student Advantage enables students to access the familiar experience of Office in an always-up-to-date cloud service across their compatible PCs, tablets and phones.
