Introducing New Student Advantage
We are pleased to announce that all current Douglas County students will be enrolled in the Microsoft Student Advantage Program. As part of this program, all Douglas County students will be issued a Microsoft 365 account. This account includes OneDrive (cloud storage), calendar, and online collaboration tools (Word Online, PowerPoint Online, etc.) These powerful tools will help our students develop the 21st century skills necessary to be successful in a constantly changing and technology-driven world.
Additionally, students will have the ability to download and install the full version of the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote) on up to 5 personal devices at no cost.
To begin, log in to your Microsoft account using your username (firstname

The website for logging in is portal.office.com
