Office 365 is the new subscription-based version of Microsoft Office that Minneapolis Public Schools is using.  It goes well beyond Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint, however.  The upgrade to Office 365 will feature the district’s entire email system being placed in the cloud; this offers us greater access, more flexibility, and timely updates.  We will continue to integrate new features (such as Skype for Business) when they become available.
