Title vs. General Fund Email Infinite Campus (our student information system) Grades Attendance
You must have a MacBook to supervise and set up iPads. A cart is convenient for setup, storing, and charging iPads. (We use Bretford.) Create an institutional Apple ID to supervise the iPads. Download Apple Configurator from the App Store.
Using the MacBook, prepare one iPad. Set up the iPad exactly how you want each iPad. Create a backup of the iPad. Connect the MacBook to the cart and prepare all iPads with only a wi-fi profile. Finally, supervise all iPads with the backup profile and numbers.
If your school location wi-fi differs from the one used for setup, enter on each device. Log in one time to iCloud in Settings on each device. We added label stickers to iPads with their numbers.
It was recommended to use to add a “non-delete” profile. Forced a setup “part deux” day – single iPad at a time reset.
