ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY

Please see the updated procedures that have been added to the Assistive Technology Page on the D 75 Website for Home Instruction Students.

IEP Mandated iPads

Please note that the set up procedures for IEP mandated devices are different than those for programmatic units. DO NOT LUMP THESE TOGETHER.  The IEP Mandated units are set up with gmail accounts unique to these devices. They cannot be backed up to your existing account as this will put us in violation of “use” with the apps we provide. The correct set up instructions are provided at the time an IEP mandated device it given to a student.

ATTENTION:CRISIS PARAS; ALTERNATE PLACEMENT PARAS; HEALTH PARAS; TRANSPORTATION PARAS;
