Sarasota County Schools, located in Sarasota, Fla., has partnered with Microsoft to provide Microsoft Office 365 to their students and employees districtwide. Through their existing partnership, all staff and students have access to the latest version of Microsoft Office for use at home, as well as cloud storage for their most important files via OneDrive for Business.

In this webinar, our guests will discuss:

• Decisions made prior to deployment
• What Office 365 looks like for staff/students
• Challenges/Solutions to fit K-12 environment
• Real world use cases
• New levels of productivity—OneNote
