Technology Resources

1Internet, computers, software, and computer training can be expensive!  The following are some great resources that make technology needs more affordable.

Free Microsoft Office Download
As part of Denver Public Schools’ licensing agreement with Microsoft, we are now able to distribute Microsoft Office to Denver Online High School students.  Any fully-enrolled, active DPS student in grades 9-12 is allowed to install Microsoft Office on one personal computer.  Each student is authorized to have one copy only with the software distributed through a secure website that requires a student login – generally an Infinite Campus login works: https://studentoffice.dpsk12.org.

Students will need to use Internet Explorer or Firefox to complete the download: Safari is not a supported option.  Students will only have three attemps to successfully download the software and may need to complete it in a DPS lab.  Therefore, students should not go beyond two attempts at home.
