Downloading Apps

The software/apps originally installed by Faribault Public Schools must remain on the iPad in usable condition and be easily accessible at all times. 

Additional Apps

All District-provided apps will be available in the self service app or directly on the iPad screen. Students will NOT be able to download any apps from the App store directly onto their iPads. Students are not permitted to connect their iPads to any computers.

App and Software Upgrades

Upgrade versions of licensed software/apps are available from time to time. Students may be required to check in their iPads for periodic updates and syncing. Most small updates will happen over the network. Students need to watch for announcements as when to perform upgrades. Apps and software upgrades should be applied off-site or outside of regular school hours whenever possible.

Circumvention of Managed Settings (Hacking)

All student iPads are set-up by the technology department for the purpose of initializing and managing all iPads in a secure and organized fashion. Any attempts by students to circumvent any district management settings through software restoration orjailbreaking will result in the confiscation of the iPad and disciplinary action. District personnel will be alerted when a student circumvents the original managed settings.
