    Office ProPlus

    CBSD High School and Middle School students now have access to the Microsoft service known as Office 365. Office 365 offers a variety of tools for students, including Outlook internal email functionality (email only within the CBSD organization), file storage and collaboration through the OneDrive tool, MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint via Office Web Apps (from within the OneDrive tool), and a Calendar tool.
     
    Access to these tools is simple through most modern internet browsers:
    1. Visit the Office 365 login page.  If you are accessing this page from a school computer, you will be automatically logged in to the account of the user logged into that computer.  If you are using a non-school computer, please proceed to step 2.

    2. Students should enter their username in the format of Lastname.F123 where Lastname.F123 is your standard CBSD network username.

      Staff members should enter their username in the format of fLastname where fLastname is your standard CBSD network username.

    3. For your password, simply enter your standard CBSD network password.

    4. Once you are successfully logged in, you will be able to click on any of the menu items available to you, where you will find an intuitive interface for using the tool of your choice.

    Note:  Your experience may vary slightly depending on the browser you are using.  You may wish to use a different browser or update your version for improved compatibility.  Complete list of compatible browsers

     
    What should you do if you experience a problem accessing Office 365?
    High school students should go to the House Office and Middle school students should go to the Main Office and ask the secretary to submit a HelpDesk ticket, and the CBSD IT Department will troubleshoot the issue. 

    Can students send or receive email to or from email addresses outside CBSD.org?
    No. The email functionality is limited to messages to and from cbsd.org and/or students.cbsd.org. Students can send email messages to their teachers and to other students within the district.

    Can you access Office 365 Outlook from a smartphone?
    Yes. Configuration steps vary by smartphone, but generally, you will need to add an Exchange ActiveSync email account to your phone with the following settings:

    Username: lastname.f123@student.cbsd.org
    Password: <your current CBSD network password>
    Server: outlook.office365.com
    Domain: <leave this setting blank>

     
    Can you access Office on mobile devices (phones and tablets)?
    Yes.  Please visit the Installation Instructions for Mobile Devices page for
