Parental Controls

As a cornerstone of our technology-enhanced curriculum, Villa Maria requires each student to have their own iPad. To manage them all, tie things together, and activate Apple Classroom here at the School, we’re proudly using the Mosyle Manager MDM.

We understand that parents can worry about how much time their kids spend using screens. With the ScreenGuide app, parents can easily manage devices at home. They can set parental controls and configure rules for the safe, educational and fun use of tablets and smartphones, while minimizing potential risks such as cyberbullying, inappropriate content consumption, and excessive screen time.

To set up and start managing your child’s device(s), please download the ScreenGuide app and follow the instructions found here: http://screen.guide/school/A1040
