The Microsoft Home Use Program currently offers a 30% discount on Office 365 for district staff.


Note: Previous offers through this program included options to buy a copy of Office; this was discontinued in August 2019.


Step by Step Guide

1. Go to the Microsoft Home Use Program website.

2. Enter your work e-mail (the shakopee.k12.mn.us address) and click Get Started.

3. After entering the e-mail address, you should see this message:

Thanks! If you're eligible, a verification email will be sent to you shortly.


4. Check your e-mail for a confirmation message from Microsoft.  Follow the instructions from there to create or use a separate Microsoft account in order to acquire the subscription and set up billing information.  Note that subscriptions such as Office 365 are subject to annual billing.
