Good News for CUSD Staff:
CUSD employees can now get Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 on their home computer for $9.95 (or $23.94 if you want physical backup disk as well) under the Home Use Program (HUP). This program is also available in the 2016 MAC version. Following is the announcement from Microsoft:
“Under the Home Use Program, you and our other employees who are users of qualifying applications at work (e.g. Office Enterprise) may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software (e.g. Office Enterprise) to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using HUP software while you are under our employment and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.” (CUSD has active coverage)

Microsoft has asked us to not share our access code with others outside of CUSD. In order to comply with this request, please email Bonnie McCarthy for more information if you are interested. She will send you the necessary information to sign up. This is a great deal, since the regular price for Microsoft Office Professional 2016 starts at $99.99 per year.
