If the apps do not appear to be downloading, go to the app store Purchased section and search for the apps there. Sometimes restarting your iPad also forces it to make the change.

Issues With Paid Apps

At this time, ALL teachers should have access to download the following paid apps:


  • Explain Everything - create video tutorials
  • Notability - for annotation
  • Popplet - for bubble maps
  • Stage Pro - Interactive Whiteboard and Document Camera App


Other paid apps will vary from campus to campus and grade levels


If you have any issues with the invitation not being on your iPad, not all apps available to download or not downloading appropriately please notify your campus Instructional Technology Facilitator.

Requests for Paid Apps

Requests for paid apps must go through the campus administrator for approval. Once approved at the campus level, submit request to Software Support Coordinator, Kimberly Jett. Once funding and purchase has gone through, an Apple Technician will assist with the addition on student devices. Apps distributed to faculty will be done through the process explained above.
