The iPad

The iPad is a device provided by the Jersey Shore Area School District to all students. Each student has access to a device, which is registered to their district account.

Starting at the “Hello” screen

  1. Set language to English
  2. Set country to U.S.
  3. Tap Set up manually
  4. Connect the device to your network, or JS-Student if inside the district
  5. Click next on the Remote Management page
  6. Sign in with your district email and password
  7. The iPad may take a few moments to set up
  8. Enable location services
  9. Once at the homepage, district apps will download – the speed at which they become available is entirely dependent on network speed

A common step in the troubleshooting process is to wipe and reset the iPad. This can solve a multitude of problems the iPad might be having.
