Office 365 FREE to all students and staff

DOUGLAS COUNTY – Through a special partnership with Microsoft, we are proud to announce that all Douglas County School District (DCSD) students and staff will be able to download Office 365 free of charge, for use at home. 

With Office 365, student, employees and their families will have access to the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and much more on their personally owned computers and devices. 

Please note: this software is only for use on personal devices. Software may not be installed on DCSD computers, as DCSD handles licenses on these computers separately.

Students and staff may use any combination of these versions on up to 5 devices. They can also run Office for iPad on up to 5 mobile devices, and Office Mobile for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone on unlimited devices.

They also will be able to use your Microsoft Office subscription as long as the student is enrolled in DCSD. 

This benefit is available NOW to all active DCSD students and employees.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
