Benefits and Discounts

Working for the school district provides several opportunities to save money

Office 365

Part of our new Microsoft licensing includes the ability for teachers and staff to download the latest version of Microsoft Office for free. To do this, go to portal.office.com and log in using your @msdmail.net email address. This email is tied to your Office 365 account. You can not log in using your @msdmartinsville.org account.

When you type in the email addres, it will redirect you to another page where you will log in under our organization. Your login password will be the same as what you use for Windows.

Near the left hand side you will see a link that says "Install my Software" under "Office Software". Click this link, and then you will have a page giving you the opportunity to download the latest Office 365 ProPlus.

Please note this program is for personal comptuers. If you have a school owned device, you will need to have your building tech install Office if you need it.

Microsoft Home Use Program

With the purchase of our new Microsoft License Agreement this summer, we were able to include the Microsoft “Home Use Program” (HUP). This gives our staff the ability to order a full version of Microsoft Office 2013 Professional to use at home for $9.95. 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 through the school corporation.

Staff members must use their school corporation provided email address. Please note that this is your Windows username @msdmail.net, and uses your Windows password. This is NOT the new @msdmartinsville.org Gmail address.

Software CAN NOT be installed on a school computer! This directly conflicts with our school corporation license agreement.

Please note that some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order. For up-to-date information on the availability of Home Use Program software, please visit http://microsoft.com/licensing.
