We are excited to announce we are now offering Microsoft 365 licenses for students! Teachers will be able to purchase student Microsoft licenses for a $20 fee, instructional funds can be used. The Microsoft suite will include Microsoft Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Word. Students will be issued a Microsoft account after the PO has been approved.

Students with a Mac or Windows PC will be able to install the full-featured apps. Students with iPads can download the apps from the App Store, and then sign in to the apps with their Sage Oak provided Microsoft account. Students with Chromebooks will be able to use the online version of the apps.

FAFSA
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opens this week on October 1st and we will be streaming a webinar on Thursday, October 15th from 4-5 pm to navigate the application. FAFSA completion is necessary to be considered for federal student financial aid.

States and colleges also use the FAFSA to determine eligibility for other financial aid. Expert presenters will provide plain-language instructions as well as practical advice and resources to make this important step in the college application process as stress-free as possible.
