iPad check In time is near!

Your school will be communiating with you soon about checking in your student's iPad for the summer. Here are some tips to make sure you're ready AND prepared for next year:

  • Save your work. If your student is returning to the same school next year, there's a good likelihood that their existing iPad will be returned to them. However, it's always a good idea to back up any items such as photos or projects you want to keep. Information on backing up the entire iPad can be found here, but you may also want to simply share or save individual items. To do so, look for the share icon the action button in an app and select the method of sharing (Google Drive, email, AirDrop, etc). 
  • Update. If your student hasn't already done so, help them update their iPad to iOS 9.3. We'll be making some updates to our managment system over the summer and an update now will ensure your student's iPad will be ready to go in the fall.
  • Charge. Because the iPad will be stored for several months, make sure that it has at least a 40% charge on the day it is to be turned in.
  • Insurance. If you made a partial payment of the optional insurance fee this year, you need to complete payment before the end of the year so that your student will be eligible for insurance again next year.

Thanks for your help!
