Do I have to get the latest version of iPad? What type of iPad do I need to bring?

It is recommended when purchasing that the latest iPad version be purchased. We expect a new iPad will last students for at least three years. If an earlier model iPad is already owned then this is fine to use. Please note that earlier model iPads would not be expected to last students for as many years. Due to the life cycle of technology, students are expected to bring an iPad to school that is no more than three years old. It is important that you do some research into the type of device required for your child’s secondary placement before purchasing a new device. We highly recommend an iPad that has storage of 32GB or higher. An iPad mini is also acceptable.

 

Does my child set up an iTunes account if they are under the age of 13?

As your child is under the age of 13, you will be required to set up your child’s iTunes account for them. Parents need to use their own date of birth during the set up process. Using an iTunes gift card is recommended, not a credit card. It is also important that parents actively monitor the apps (and other media) that students are putting on their iPad.
