    September 10, 2012 - All devices have been in the student hands for the first quarter. A couple of casualties with the iPads being dropped, but not bad for having the numbered deployed across the school. Teachers are using these well in the classroom. Continual professional development really pays off. Students new to the iPad are adjusting well and overall comments are quite positive.
    July 10, 2012 - Absolute Management Software used the previous year to manage and deploy apps to the student devices was attempted to be renewed. Customer service was so bad when attempting to take care of this we discontinued this product. We requested Maas360 be used and within 24 hours they had us up and running! Now that is a company that knows how to keep a customer!
    June 23, 2012 - First iPad Conference Training! After many inquiries, the FA staff presented a series of sessions to groups and individuals from other schools and states on the use of the iPad in the classroom. Plans were made for the next installment of this program for later in the Fall.
    May 15, 2012 - Additional iPads are purchased to cover all high school students. This will bring the total to close to 500 student devices, 120 teacher devices, and clas sets of 30 and 10 or the Middle School.
    April 17, 2012 - iPads have been issued to the 10th grade class. This will give them an opportunity to learn the platform well before the beginning of the next school year.

    Note: The current deployment system has been updated since the creation of these documents. For more up-to-date understanding of the new products and systems implemented at Franklin Academy, visit us at the Teaching & Learning with the iPad conference.
    To document our process, and to provide a resource for others, we have created an iPad Deployment Model outlining our system for iPad management. These links will be updated as we further revise the content.

    Changes for the 2014-2015 school year include:
    Addition of Educreations, Puppet Pals HD, Duolingo, Shakespeare Pro, and Aviary as standard-issue applications.
    Replacement of older iPad 2 inventory with new iPad Air models in Griffin Survivor cases.
    Standard configuration of iPad 2s was completed with Apple Configurator again, but the new iPad Airs were supervised over the air using Apple's DEP program in order to compare enrollment processes.
    Canvas replaces Edmodo as our LMS
    PowerSchool replaces RenWeb as our SIS
    Meraki MR34 and 18 replace Aruba AP-105 access points across campus
    Meraki MX100 replaces OpenDNS and Cisco ASA5505 as web filter/security appliance.
    ===============================================================================

    The 2013-2014 school year will see several changes to our policies and procedures for managing the iPad initiative at Franklin Academy High School, including a shift in the foundational way our iPads are configured and managed.
    The need for these changes was brought about through our desire to use iPads for End-of-Course testing. North Carolina has specific guidelines for the configuration of iPads used for online testing. While we were already in compliance with most of the standard, we did not have iMessage blocked. The ability to block iMessage on a large scale requires devices running iOS 6, and Supervised through Apple Configurator. Because our iPad inventory was only Prepared with Configurator, and not all of our iPads are capable of running iOS 6, we would be unable to use our iPads for testing without a change.
