We have been made aware that some of the devices distributed (namely iPads) by PCS and some families may not have had the full Microsoft suite (e.g. word, PowerPoint, etc.) on their devices. TIS will be pushing out an update for district devices. In addition, instructions for downloading free Microsoft products for all PCS families are available on the Student and Family Digital webpage.
