Grade 7 and 8 iPads will be wiped on a rolling basis and enrolled into the new management system JAMF that already houses the grade 6 devices.  Students can log into their managed Apple IDs (ID number@apsva.us) or back up videos and pictures to their Google Drive if they are concerned with losing any data.  In the new system, students will be forced to sign in with their APS Apple ID and see a Self Service icon instead of the APS app catalog icon.  Students who have any issues can reach out to their TA teachers who will ensure the device gets set up properly.

Welcome back Yellowjackets!  Sixth grade students should bring in their current iPads and chargers to be exchanged for new ones the first week of school.  Students new to APS will receive devices as well during this week.   Students will also be made aware of the county’s acceptable use and damage policies.  All iPad issues should initially be communicated to your student’s TA teacher to start the help process.  Please note the Acceptable Use Policies below to understand the county’s expectations and student/guardian responsibilities.
