Parental Controls for iPads
Mansfeld parents and guardians can now monitor and limit their student's iPad usage outside of school hours! You have access to a great app called ScreenGuide Parental Control that allows you to set parental controls and configure rules for the safe, fun, and educational use of tablets and smartphones – while minimizing potential risks such as cyberbullying, inappropriate content consumption, and overexposure to screens. 

To set up and start managing your child’s school device, just follow these step-by-step directions (click here for Spanish). You can also watch videos explaining many of the features on this YouTube playlist. Most videos are under one minute long and very informative! At this time ScreenGuide monitoring is only supported on Apple devices (iPhones or iPads)

1:1 iPad Initiative
The Verizon Innovative Learning Schools program is designed to address barriers in digital inclusion, bridge the digital divide, and inspire students through technology. As a Verizon Innovative Learning School (VILS for short), teachers and students receive access to iPads and specially designed curriculum and instruction using the technology. 

Students first received the VILS iPads during the 2019-2020 school year and have continued using 1:1 iPads on campus and off in the following school years. Mansfeld is now a VILS Alumni school, and we continue to have use of the iPads, however we no longer have access to the data plan. Devices can be used off-campus anywhere that wi-fi is available! For more information on the VILS program, please visit the Verizon 1:1 iPad Initiative Webpage.

All parents and guardians must complete the required registration paperwork prior to their student receiving an iPad. A QR code for the paperwork was available at registration, was sent out in a ParentLink and is available hereMansfeld Registration Form. Our on-site technology liaison will be able to get your student an iPad within a week of that paperwork being turned in.

iPads are being used for instruction daily so please be sure to communicate with your student the importance of bringing their iPad to school with them every day fully charged!
