SUMMER UPDATE:

While your DOE-loaned iPad is currently setup with a content filter to ensure your child's internet safety, an updated content filtering application is now available. Please sign-in on your device to enable these updates as soon as possible. After July 31, 2020 internet access on the iPad will be limited to DOE resources until you sign in to the Zscaler software to establish a secure connection.

Visit the DOE iPad Support webpage for step-by-step instructions on how to update this important software.
