Preparing Your iPad For Collection
Each student must sign out of his/her iCloud account to turn off Find My iPad. Before you sign out of your account, you are strongly encouraged to save any important iCloud photos or documents (i.e. from Notability) to Google Drive or another location as a backup. See this page for more information on saving documents to Google Drive.
To sign out of your iCloud account, navigate to your iPad Settings file. On the top left side of the screen, click on your name. Then, on the right hand side, choose the "sign out" option. Type in your Apple ID password to confirm. Your name should disappear from the left hand menu, and you should see an option to sign in instead. If you are unable to sign out of your iCloud account, see the Tech Hub for assistance.
You also need to turn off your passcode. To turn this feature off, navigate to the Touch ID & Passcode option on the left hand side and enter your passcode when you are prompted. Then, choose the option to Turn Passcode Off. If you are unable to select this option, see the Tech Hub for assistance.
Other Important Information
Starting with the 2021-2022 School Year, students will use a Managed Apple ID to access their new iPad and other materials needed for school. Because of this, students must change their current Mater Dei Apple ID (ending in stu.materdei.org email) to a different Apple ID email (not ending in stu.materdei.org). To change your Apple ID email, go to appleid.apple.com, log in to your current Apple ID, and follow the instructions near the top of the page to change the email address.
Students will also be assigned a new email address at ReDD Days. If there are any important emails that you want to keep from your CURRENT Mater Dei email address, forward them to a personal or parent's email address. Do not use the forwarding option, as this will stop working as soon as your old email is discontinued. New email addresses will be populated on July 1, 2021, although students should still have access to their old email until July 31, 2021. To be safe, save or forward any necessary emails by June 30.
Returning students will still have access to Google Drive and related apps after June 30. This is not affected by the change with email.
Senior students will lose access to their email and Google Drive accounts after June 30.
