Great news! CVESD has provided your child an OFFICE 365 account at NO COST to you! OFFICE 365 PRO PLUS includes Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and One Note. This Student Advantage Program is a WONDERFUL opportunity and teaching tool. This account will allow your child to begin assignments in class and continue to work on them at home. Currently, all digital assignments are confined to the laptop they are begun on in class and not able to be worked on at home. After this fall break we will begin PowerPoint presentations and will need ALL students to set up their OFFICE 365 account before we return. Below is the link (Student Advantage Program) and follow this formula for signing in. NOTE: Student ID# is the same number used for Achieve 3000 username. Password should be the same as well, except first initial needs to be CAPITALIZED for Office 365.
