iTunes Accounts Student iPads are typically stored together in a mobile cart. When we purchase apps for student iPads we must purchase one license for each iPad. There is a special procedure for this. Student iPads will be set up with district iTunes accounts that will be managed by a site Program Facilitator. All of these accounts are tightly controlled and require special training from the district to administer. Please see your Program Facilitator to add any apps to student iPads. Teacher accounts are up to the individual teacher to create and maintain. Teacher iPads are independent of the school iPad cart. To purchase apps, you can log into your own personal account and use your credit card. However, we recommend you create a new account just for work and either use an iTunes gift card or request a purchase code from your Program Facilitator.
