Free Microsoft Office Download
Denver Public Schools offers a free Microsoft Office download for all DPS students. It is Office 2013 for PCs and 2008 for Macs. Students must be connected to the DPS network while downloading, so students should bring their laptops to the school in order to install this on their computer.
Free Libre Office Download
If you do not have Microsoft Office, Libre Office is an excellent free option. You will need to go to the “Preferences” on a Mac or “Options” on a PC to change the settings for the program to save files as Microsoft format. Once this is done, you would never know you were not using MS Office. Please contact DOHS Tech Martha Wilcox (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you have any questions.
