iPad Restriction Settings

All district devices enrolled in our mobile device management (MDM) system receive a base set of restrictions: elementary, middle school, high school, or staff. The level of restrictions is based on the school the iPad is assigned to and the individual who enrolled the iPad.

This helps to ensure that every device receives the correct restrictions for the assigned user.

When multiple restriction settings overlap, the more restrictive will be respected at all times.

Staff Restrictions
