This letter is to inform you that NISD is undergoing a technology initiative that will be implemented over the coming weeks.
What is it?
As part of our education technology program, we’ve been empowering students and teachers with iPads. To help keep these devices current and get students the learning resources they need, we are pushing an iOS update to your students’ iPad.
Why are we doing this?
In order to keep our student devices secure and protected, we like to keep our mobile devices updated to the latest iOS version.
How are we doing this?
Through our Mobile Device Management System, we will be able to initiate an update to every iPad that isn’t already on iOS version 14.2.
What do we need from you?
If you are able to manually update your device, we would greatly appreciate the help! If this is not an option, we will send a command to update your student’s device. Keep in mind that in either case, the iPad needs to be plugged into the wall and connected to a wireless network or the district's Mifi device. The battery needs to be at a minimum of 50%.
When will we be updating?
We will start the initiative on December 10th for the devices on Mifi and continue the following week on December 16th for the rest of the devices. Please ensure the iPads are charged/charging and on a wireless network during these times.
Who to contact with questions?
If you have any questions, please contact your school. We thank you for your support in this initiative.
