  • Welcome to  Instructional Technology.

    Since computers have become a major part of our tools for work and learning, it is our goal to provide on time support to our schools and centers. We now have the means to connect to you remotely and solve most technical issues. This technology saves time and cuts down on travel expenses.

    Please view our district technology plan below for more information on how we are working to keep technology and learning on track. View/Download the current plan.

  • As of July 6, 2015 Office 365 will be available for FREE to all members of Alachua County Public Schools students, faculty and staff. Click on one of the links below to get started.

    Office 365 ProPlus benefit now available for faculty and staff

    We have great news to share—we are announcing that faculty and staff are now able to access the same Office 365 ProPlus benefit as their students. This means that any organization purchasing Office for all of their faculty and staff can now include an Office 365 ProPlus subscription at no extra cost for all students, faculty and staff.

    Extending the Office 365 ProPlus benefit to faculty and staff ensures that teachers are using the latest versions of Office and the same feature set as their students. It will allow teachers to install full Office on up to five PCs or Macs and unlock the editing capabilities of the Office apps for iPad. It also gives them access to all their Office documents both at school and at home. With Office 365 ProPlus teachers can take advantage of great Office apps and add-ins like Office Mix to record and publish class lectures.

    Microsoft Student Advantage Program

    Alachua County Public Schools is proud to announce the new Microsoft Student Advantage Program to students and parents. This program provides free access to Office 365 Pro Plus for students enrolled in school districts that purchase enterprise-level licenses. Alachua County Public Schools meets this requirement!

    Any student who is currently enrolled in the Alachua County School District is eligible and may download and install Office 365 Pro applications on up to 5 devices (PC, MAC, and/or mobile device).

    Alachua County Public Schools assumes no liability concerning teacher or staff home computing devices if they choose to download and install these applications. Users who encounter technical difficulties must seek technical support on their own or contact Microsoft directly. (more fine print)
