Purchasing Discounted Microsoft Software

by Michael Ahr in


In the past, the Microsoft "Work-at-Home" license allowed us to sign out a copy of Microsoft Office for teachers to install on their home computers. The latest version of Office does not have this type of licensing. However, the county has an agreement that allows teachers to purchase Microsoft products at a fraction of the retail cost... sometimes as much as 80% off! Use the link below to access a secure document on the private side of GAfE. For obvious reasons, we cannot publish the link to the discount site directly on this website.

Modifying the Dock on Your MacBook

by Michael Ahr in


Some teachers have noticed that they can't remove applications from the dock that they themselves haven't added. This feature was added by the county to prevent anyone from accidentally removing their network drives. However, if you'd really like to make changes to the applications on the dock anyway, follow this link to see the directions to do so. They're a bit involved, so be prepared.
