When you receive your iPad, it will have a temporary wifi connection that will expire after 30 days.
All you need to do is go through the welcome screens:
- Select your language
- Tap "next" to start the remote management dialogue
- SIgn in with your District 65 credentials
- You may skip the "sign in with AppleID" page by tapping on "I forgot or don't have an appleID" and then tapping on "set up later..." on the pop up message.
- tap through the remaining setup options (i.e. Screentime, light mode/dark mode, etc.)
After you have completed setup and you're at the usual home screen, you will see a message pop up that you need to set a passcode
This passcode must be 8 characters long and include letters and numbers - it should NOT be your D65 password.
aside from requiring at 8 characters, one of which must be a number/letter, it does not need to be as 'strong' of a passcode/word as any other login - so pick something that is easy to type.
You can also use TouchID to avoid having to type the passcode to unlock the iPad. It will still ask for the passcode after a restart or after a long period of being in sleep mode.
To set up TouchID:
Open Settings and look for "TouchID" on the left sidebar.
Tap on "Add Fingerprint" in the middle of the TouchID menu items. You will need to input your unlock passcode to add a fingerprint.
Follow the onscreen guide to complete the TouchID setup.
It is highly encouraged that you add more than one fingerprint.
To sign in to your District 65 appleID on your iPad:
Go to Settings and tap on the AppleID option in the top left corner.
Your username is your "@district65.net" email address. This username is recognized as belonging to the district, so it will take you to the familiar password entry page you also see when signing into websites. Enter your password there. (you may also need to provide your multifactor authentication as well.)
To sign into Google:
Open Google Drive and sign in with your District credentials. You will be asked to provide multifactor authentication.
