Virginia Beach, Va. – Virginia Beach City Public Schools has taken action and is providing more than 68,000 students with access to Microsoft Office 365 suite for no charge. But what’s the catch?

There is none! The Office 365 subscription is absolutely free and lasts as long as the student remains in the VBCPS.

The software includes access to Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and OneNote. Automatic updates will occur frequently and will keep the programs running smoothly and efficiently.

Office 365 is now available for iPad, iPhone, Android, as well as Windows Phone. No longer limited to a desktop, all programs are mobile and ready to be downloaded from their respective app stores.

Once downloaded, verification with the student network account is all that is needed to enjoy the programs.
