How do I know if I have been migrated to the new Office 365?  And after I migrate, where is my H Drive?
CUSD Staff is being migrated over to the new system in small groups.  By migrating staff over to the new Office 365 in groups, our Technology and TRT site support teams can assist those users and provide personalized support with quicker response times.  You will be informed via email prior to your migration to the Office 365 system.  The emails will also be copied to your site administrators, Technology Resource Teachers, and front office administrative assistants to ensure that someone on your school site is available with instructions for you.

Once you have been migrated, welcome to the Cloud!  Part of the Office 365 upgrade includes cloud storage of all of your files.  Your H Drive files will be completely copied over to the Office 365 OneDrive.  To find your OneDrive, go to "My Computer" and you will see your OneDrive as well as your Google Drive:

Change is so stressful!  Why is the district changing our software?
Microsoft Office has continued to update it's software over the years.  It has been quite some time since a significant update to the software has occurred.  The 2016 versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint look much different than versions past, but rest assured that the general functions of the program remain the same.  Video tutorials are provided on this page for help - they are quick to follow and will give you great tips to help you be successful in using the updated products.  
Why do we have both Google and Microsoft Office 365?
The CUSD District utilizes two programs - Google Apps for Education (Google Drive) and Microsoft O365 (Outlook email and software).  The purpose of using both is based in security - Google Apps for Education is the student learning environment. Microsoft O365 is the business environment.  

By using Google Apps for Education for students, the district has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment, storage, and support expenses.  The Google Apps for Education is an ideal software suite for students.  

For staff and business, such as budgets and requisitions and confidential email, the district has selected Microsoft Office 365 based on their privacy and backup policies for email retention.  Additionally, many businesses continue to use Microsoft products, and sharing files between the school district and these businesses continues to require the use of Microsoft Office products. 
So, what is my email address?  What is the difference between all these .net, .com, and .org addresses I have?
Each system has a specific login requirement.  We have been able to keep the same @coronadousd for each login, but each requires a unique "domain," thus causing the .org, .com, and .net accounts.  What really matters is to know which to use for what logins:
Program Username Password Notes
Google Drive Google Drive/Apps Password This is also your staff/student Haiku Login
Microsoft Office Outlook Your network password for logging on to district computers Your email address that people email you at remains
What email address do I give to people to email me?
The email address that people can send you email messages to remains the same.  There are two formats for your work email address:

    You will receive email in the same Outlook email Inbox for emails sent to either of the addresses listed above.  
Sometimes people mistakenly send email to my CUSD Google gmail account, the .org account.  How can I be alerted to emails sent to my CUSD Google gmail account without having to check that email inbox?
First, please communicate clearly to parents and students about exactly how they can contact you.  If you do not check your CUSD Google gmail email account, letting parents and students know this and informing them on your Haiku page of how to contact you will be very helpful.  You can also set up an automatic forwarding of your CUSD Google gmail account to your CUSD Outlook email Inbox.  Click here to follow the instructions to set up forwarding.
