Big Changes for Education in the Big Apple

Feb 11, 2015   |   MSNY Staff

Today, in the State of the City Address by New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, she announced a further venture to Lift #EveryVoiceNYC by combining education with technology. We are pleased to announce that in collaboration with the City Council, the New York City Department of Education has worked to provide 1.1 million students in the New York City Public Schools free access to Office365 ProPlus, including up to five downloads of the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access and Publisher, along with anywhere, anytime access to OneDrive cloud storage.

Microsoft is committed to improving education outcomes and helping young people around the world do more and achieve more. We fulfill that commitment every day through the more than 30 free programs and hundreds of partnerships that make up the Microsoft YouthSpark initiative. We also bring that commitment to life through the Office 365 ProPlus benefit.
