Based on feedback from staff, students, and parents, District 218 has implemented new app restrictions for the 2018-19 school year. These changes will keep students focused on educational apps and minimize distractions from games and other apps that are not needed for class.
- Applies to ALL student iPads at all times (during school hours and at home).
- The App Store has been removed from all district-provided iPads. Students are unable to view or download apps from the App Store.
- All apps needed for school are available in the Self Service app on the iPad. Self Service is the District 218 App Store.
- Apps available for download in Self Service must be requested by teachers and approved by district administration before students can install the apps.
