Microsoft is introducing changes to their Microsoft 365 in Education. These changes include limits on storage and retiring the Office A1 Plus program. The increase in technology use in education made free, unlimited storage plans prohibitive and became a security risk. Microsoft’s goal is to offer education customers generous allowances, new support tools, and time for transitions. Most schools are beneath their storage allotment and most will not have to reduce current storage, but all will need to start implementing new information management policies.

The Office A1 Plus program, introduced in 2015, was designed to help transition users to the cloud. Though this program will be phased out, a no-cost option and significant discounts on commercial pricing will still be offered. Storage changes are afoot within Microsoft 365 and Office 365 for education customers. Before August 1, 2024, all school tenants will get 100TB of free pooled storage across OneDrive, SharePoint, and Exchange, plus an additional 50GB or 100GB is available for A3 and A5 subscriptions.

Effective February 1, 2024, users of the no-cost subscription Office 365 A1 will be limited to 100GB of OneDrive storage per user within the school tenant’s 100TB of pooled storage. To assist schools with the transition, Microsoft is providing a set of free tools to manage the process.

Augmenting Digital Transition in Schools

The changes in Microsoft's offerings are aimed at bolstering the digital transition in schools, ensuring manageable and secure connectivity. These transitions are vital for propelling technological advancements in the education sector. Microsoft's continued commitment to providing schools with a generous, managed, and secure digital platform underscores its dedication in shaping the future of digital education.
