Parental Controls: Using Apple’s Screen Time Setting

Screen Time iconScreen Time

Beginning with iOS 12, Apple has provided additional tools to let parents know how much time their children spend on apps, websites, and more. Now families can make more informed decisions about how children use their devices, and set limits if they’d like.

Read more about Apple’s Screen Time here.

Parents can set up Screen Time either right on the student iPad or they can use Family Sharing to configure their child’s device from their own Apple device or computer.

The district sets base restriction levels on student iPads. Some school may choose to enable elevated restrictions in addition to the base student restrictions, and these settings may interfere with some Screen Time settings. Please be aware that choosing to restrict web content to “Allowed Websites Only” may prevent access to some digital curricular content. Click here to learn more.

If you have questions or would like assistance with Screen Time settings, please reach out to your school!
