iPad Configuration For School

Configuring Your iPad

Students at Bellarmine are connected to our systems once their iPads are configured for school use. Unconfigured iPads are not allowed on our network.

Bring your device to campus to be configured by the Digital Services staff. If your iPad has already been used, please wipe the iPad first. Leave your name, phone number and email address with the iPad you drop-off to the Academic Commons in Orell Hall. The process usually takes 24-48 hours.

Each Student Needs An Apple ID

Before you begin your setup process, you will need an AppleID. If you are setting up a new iPad, then the setup wizard on the tablet will ask you to supply or create an AppleID. If you are using an old iPad, it probably has an AppleID already configured. The AppleID is used for many things, including backup & recovery and book purchases.

Email Setup

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Press Passwords & Accounts.
  3. Press Add Account.
  4. Press Google.
  5. Enter your full name, Bellarmine email address and password.
  6. Change the description to Bellarmine, then press Next.
  7. Press Save.

Bellarmine uses Jamf, a mobile device management tool, to track and configure iPads used at Bellarmine by teachers and students. The following disclosure explains the capabilities of Jamf.  Bellarmine limits its use of Jamf to the successful execution of our 1-to-1 mobile program.

JAMF for Schools

Capabilities and Usage Disclosure

Network Access Policy:

Access to the Bellarmine school network is restricted to employees and students. We seek to maintain a productive, secure, and properly supervised environment. Access to Bellarmine's network is granted by the Digital Services Department. Visitors are segregated into an isolated BYOD network. Installation of the JAMF school  manager is a prerequisite to all mobile Wi-Fi connections. Devices are identified by serial numbers and/or MAC addresses. These hardware identifiers are associated with the names and email addresses of authorized users.

Usage Policy

JAMF for schools collects information about the device on which it is installed, including an estimated location, network connection status, installed software and hardware utilization. Direct access to this device information is restricted to Bellarmine Digital Services staff. JAMF also gives Bellarmine ICT staff the ability to manage a device remotely. Bellarmine uses JAMF to assist users with support issues, to distribute software, monitor compliance with the acceptable use of our systems, report on system utilization for capacity planning and protect our systems from security threats or abuse. Parents may request reports of their sons' or daughters' technology usage by sending an email to School administrators may also request and be given information regarding a student's technology use. Bellarmine may be compelled by the courts to disclose network information as part of a legal proceeding. Otherwise, if a device is appropriately and legitimately connected to Bellarmine's network, Bellarmine will not disclose information collected using JAMF to employees or third parties. Bellarmine will not relinquish remote control of managed devices to employees or third parties.
