iPads

How can I get apps on my iPads?

iPads that are owned by the Stanwood-Camano school district are enrolled into a management system. This allows us to control iPads centrally and even remotely install applications for you (as well as unlock iPads!). If you would like to install apps onto specific iPad(s), please use the following instructions.

Free apps:

With free applications you may use your own AppleID, or send a HelpDesk Ticket with the following information to get your app(s) installed.

To install your own apps (faster method if you are working with a single iPad):

  • Log into the iPad App Store with your iCloud account (You can create an iCloud account using your Stanwood.wednet.edu work email).

  • Find the app you would like and click the Get button.

To have the Tech department install the app(s) onto one or multiple iPads:

  • Go to the Apple VPP website (This seems to work better in the Safari browser) .

    • Search for and locate the app you would like

    • Copy the name of the application to supply with the next step.

  • Create a HelpDesk ticket with the following information:

    • Supply the asset tag number of the iPad(s) that you would like the app installed on. If this is for an entire cart or lab, you may just include which lab name it is (example: SHS History department iPad lab)

    • Supply the name of the application to be installed. You can supply multiple applications.

That's it!! Give us a little bit of time and we will push out the policies in order to install your apps. We will follow up with an email when this is complete.

In order for us to purchase apps for specific departments, we must receive approval from the supervisor of these iPads. Please create a HelpDesk Ticket requesting these purchases, including the correct department. The following section will help you create said ticket.

District iPads:

When you create a HelpDesk ticket, use the Purcasing>iPads option for the request type. Example: iPadRequest

Withing this ticket please provide the following:

  • The app name (obtain from the Apple VPP website)
  • Quantity of the application purchases
  • What iPads you would like this app installed on

SPED iPads:

When you create a HelpDesk ticket, use the Purcasing>iPads SPED option for the request type. Example: SPEDRequest
