Oxnard Union High School District is excited to support our enrolled students, faculty and staff by providing five full copies of the Office 365 2016 Suite and Office 2016 for mobile at no cost.   Users are able to download this software for home use on a PC, Mac, iPad, and Android due to our partnership with Microsoft Corporation.  You may have seen these software tools online costing hundreds of dollars to purchase for home use. But with Office 365, all Oxnard Union High School District enrolled students, faculty and staff have access to the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and 1 Terabyte of OneDrive cloud storage.

IDC performed a study to identify the skills and competencies highly valued by employers through 2020. They scanned 14.6 million job postings from April to September 2013 and identified the top 60 positions with the highest growth and salary potential. Proficiency with Microsoft Office was number 3 out of the 20 most common skills that are both important and widely required across positions. These are essential 21st century digital learning skills which will allow our students to be prepared for colleges and beyond.
