Parental Controls for Student iPads

BPS Technology Requests

  • Guided Access provides a way for parents to have increased control over the applications their child is on, on their iPads. When a child is using a learning application at home then the parent can use these directions to enable a lock. This lock will only allow students to stay in the application that was being used when the parent sets the guided access and not be able to get out of the application to use a different one without the parent altering it. Parents who are interested in this feature can access the links below:
