      • If your iPad is still saying Lost iPad, get a pass and bring it to the media center to be unlocked

    • Media Center must be notified within 24 hours of iPad going missing, so we can ping its location

     

    What if something is not working on my iPad? Try these steps:

    1. Try a different username, it should be either:    

    29abc01      OR it could be:      29abc01@stucpsk12.org

    1. Close all apps, check that wifi is privatecps, and try again

    2. Toggle the wifi off/on – make sure it connects to privatecps

    3. Power it off all the way to the apple and then power back on

    4. Check the iOS – if an update is available, install it

    5. Still not working? Get a pass and bring iPad to the media center for help

     

    WIFI AND BLUETOOTH

    Why do wifi and bluetooth need to be left on ALL the time?

      • Having wifi turned on and connected to privatecps is crucial for all learning tasks that are done on iPads

      • Having wifi turned on is crucial for pinging iPads – we can’t help you locate a missing iPad if wifi is turned off

      • Having wifi on and cellular-data enabled is required 24/7, no matter where you are

      • Having bluetooth turned on is required while you are at school

     

    Uh oh, my iPad is low because I forgot to charge it last night!

    • Should I turn off bluetooth or wifi  or use Airplane mode to make the charge last longer?

      • NO!!! That will not make a difference, there is wifi in every classroom

      • You can disconnect your bluetooth earbuds instead of turning bluetooth off; this might save a bit of charge, but not very much

    • If your iPad is low, get permission to use a classroom charging station 

    • Or get a pass to the media center and they will charge your iPad

     

    What if I’m going on an airplane and I have to use Airplane mode, which turns off the wifi and cellular data?

    • Going on an airplane is the ONLY time that you are allowed to use Airplane mode

    • However, taking your school iPad with you on vacation is not recommended!

    • Leave your school iPad at home while traveling and just take your own personal electronics with you

     

    APPLE CLASSROOM POLICY

    Scholars must allow teachers to manage school iPads with Apple Classroom

    • Apple Classroom must be set to allow teacher to “Always” view your screen

    • Bluetooth must be on at all times while at school

    • Wifi must be on and connected to privatecps network while at school

    • Wifi keeps connecting to guestcps? 

      • Tap guestcps in Settings > Wifi and select Forget this Network

      • Still connecting to guestcps? Get a pass to the media center for help

     

    USING IPAD AT HOME
