Hello Everyone,

Stone County Schools would sincerely appreciate your input concerning technologies you would like to see in use in the offices and classrooms of your school district. What additional services might we provide? What can we do to help you stay better connected with the staff and students? On the other hand, are there any services you are not happy with that might need to be re-evaluated in the near future? Any and all input will considered. Contact me and I will respond to your concerns and / or recommendations as quickly as possible. If you would rather chat in person please do not hesitate to contact me to schedule a meeting that is convenient for you. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

4.) Once logged in you have access to order MS. Office Home and Business or MS. Office Pro Plus for a Windows or Mac machine. Make sure to choose the correct version. There are many other software choices as well.

5.) When checking out you will be given an option to purchase download protection for a few dollars more. I recommend doing this in case you have an issue with your computer in the future and need to reinstall your software.

6.) FYI… When you purchase the software you will be presented with a page containing your software registration code. This will be needed to install and activate the software. Print this page out and save it for future reference. This registration code will also be emailed to the address you provided when registering for your account.

Important! You are allowed to purchase only 1 copy of the software. Again, make sure you make the purchase using the computer you intend for the Office software to be installed on. You won’t be able to transfer it to another machine after downloading it.
