Secondary LISD Unapproved Apps
The secondary guidelines allow more flexibility.
- Apple App Store is available on district iPads in Secondary grade levels. Students can download apps with an Apple ID. There are some apps that LISD deems inappropriate. While LISD deems these apps inappropriate, currently there is no technical mechanism for blocking installation of these apps on the secondary student device. However, beginging in the Fall of the 2018 -2019 school year, LISD will begin hiding Unapproved apps on district issued iPads. Please keep in mind, students will still be able to download apps through Apple's App Store on their iPad. Although students can still download apps, the hiding feature will not allow them to see or use the app. The iPad will need to be on iOS version 9.3 or greater for the hiding feature to function. Please partner with LISD and play an active role in monitoring the apps installed on your student's device.
- Unapproved apps are not allowed and could result in disciplinary action. Please refer to the link below to reference the list of unapproved apps.
- As a parent, you have ultimate control of your student's device. Please refer to this link from Apple regarding setting parental controls.
