Los Angeles Unified School District to begin using Microsoft Office 365

It seems that Microsoft might have something to celebrate, according to a recent announcement made by the company. It turns out that Microsoft and the Los Angeles Unified School District have managed to come to an agreement in which it will see the entire district use Microsoft’s Office 365 as its cloud-based email solution for staff members and students. It is actually not common to see schools, universities, and institutions rely on services from Yahoo, Google, or Microsoft for their email solutions. 

In a press release today, Microsoft proudly announced that the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), which is actually the second largest school district in the United States, has selected Office 365 as its cloud-based email solution for staff members and students. “With Office 365, we are supported by an integrated communication and collaboration platform that helps us work more efficiently and deliver better outcomes for teachers, administrators and students. It also aligns with our vision for the district to move away from relying solely on our datacenter; the cloud enables us to free up resources and devote them to other mission-critical activities,” said Ron Chandler, chief information officer, LAUSD.
