I saw your post (from a year ago) on ipadeducators.ning.com where you said that you were "considering a 1-1 deployment for nearly 3,000 high school students…"
I work in the technology department at the Northshore School District in Bothell, WA. We are planning to deploy some iPads this fall and I am very interested in hearing how other districts manage their iOS devices for staff and student iOS devices, particularly with VPP codes and Apple IDs. I read through Apple's iOS 5 Education Deployment Guide and saw the different "ownership models" they recommend (personal, institutional, and layered). What ownership model do you follow for your staff assigned 1:1 iPads? How about for high school student 1:1 iPads? (I heard that for students under 13 you have to use the "institutional" model because kids under 13 can't have Apple IDs). We will be using JAMF Casper Suite for MDM.
Thanks in advance for your help. Hope you are all having a good summer.
