Free Microsoft Software for All Families!!! 

February 4, 2016

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I am pleased to announce that starting today, you will be able to download Microsoft software from https://studentoffice.net/, at no cost, on up to five of your family’s computers and five of your family’s tablets, smart phones, or other mobile devices. Much of this software has education-specific content that supports our students’ academic improvement. In addition, familiarity with these tools will help students be prepared for college and careers.

This opportunity is made possible through a partnership with NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Microsoft, and the NYC Department of Education.

The Microsoft products and features that will be available include:

„h Office 365 ProPlus on Windows: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Skype for Business, Access, InfoPath and Publisher installed on Windows

„h Office for Mac Professional 2016: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote

„h Office for iPad, iPhone, Android: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote

„h Cloud service

„h Office Online

You will be able to claim a download by going to https://studentoffice.net/ and entering either of the following:

1. Your child’s date of birth AND a parent phone number, or

2. Parent email

Please note, the information that you enter to claim the download must match the information on your Blue Card on file with the school. Therefore, it is necessary that we have your most up-to-date information in order for the download process to work. A student’s legal guardian may visit our main office to make any necessary changes to their contact information. You may be requested to present government-issued photo identification in order to update your contact information. Please allow up to 10 days after any changes for your information to be updated in the system.

There is no deadline to claim the free software. Families may download the software as long as they have a child enrolled in a NYC public school.

As Office 365 is a Microsoft Cloud product, you must create a Microsoft Cloud account in order to download the software. The studentoffice.net website contains not only information on how to create an account and download the software, but also answers to "Frequently Asked Questions." For technical assistance, once you have successfully completed the download, please contact Microsoft Customer Service at: 1 (800) 642-7676.

Sincerely,

Johanna Castronovo, Principal

ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS

Literacy

The Common Core State Standards require that all students be able to read and comprehend texts of steadily increasing complexity as they progress through school so that they can independently read a range of texts. We have worked with several schools via our Secondary Literacy Pilot to glean understandings about the challenges and realities of this work. Several of the resources that are available on this page have been co-developed with NYC teachers. Currently, we have made several resources on Text Complexity available. As the year progresses and more resources related to secondary literacy are available, we will share them with you here!

For Families

The Common Core standards were developed by educators and other experts based on research and lessons learned from top-performing countries. The standards describe the skills and knowledge your children need to succeed in a rapidly changing world, including the ability to think creatively, solve real-world problems, make effective arguments, and engage in debates.
