Students Now Have Access Only to Pre-Approved iPad Apps

As of March 23, Saint Paul Public Schools will replace the Apple App Store on student iPads with a customized SPPS App Store; all apps in the SPPS App Store have been approved by district staff. The app store change means that the Apple App Store will no longer be available to any PreK-12 student and the Apple App Store icon will no longer appear on student iPads.

Up to this point, the district has managed the downloading of not-approved apps through a regular, automatic "sweep" of all iPads through our technology management system. Upon detecting a questionable app, the system automatically shuts student access to the Apple App Store until the app in question is removed by the student.

Moving to an SPPS-only App Store allows the district to have complete control over the downloading of apps that have been fully vetted by a team of district staff.

It should be noted that with over 24,000 iPads in the hands of students, there have been comparatively few violations of the restricted apps and school officials have been addressing these behaviors in a timely fashion.

For a list of district-approved apps, please visit the Personalized Learning website: https://personalizedlearning.spps.org/app_selection.html
