Adobe Creative Applications
Birdville ISD has entered into an Enterprise Term License Agreement with Adobe. The Technology Department will be deploying updated versions of the Adobe software packages to district computers in the near future.
As a member of Birdville ISD, you are eligible to download the Adobe Creative Cloud software for home use. Faculty and staff can purchase a 1 year subscription for the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop Applications for $9.75 per year. The exclusively priced downloads are available at https://birdvilleschools.onthehub.com. Be sure to choose “Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop Applications for ETLA.” This process will provide you with a redemption code and instructions on how to download and install the software.
Please do not install this software on your district computer(s). The Technology Department will be deploying the district licensed versions during the second semester.
This offering is made possible through the cooperation of BISD Technology Department, Adobe, and OnTheHub.com. Please visit the Adobe section of our knowledgebase for any questions you may have.
