Media Center Information Regarding Device Updates for Milestones

As we prepare for Milestones testing, it is more important than ever for students to make sure their devices are up to date. This will also help student devices run efficiently for class use. We are asking students to check for updates every Monday when they get home from school.

Steps to update student devices:

    1. At the bottom of your screen search “Check for Updates”.
    2. Click the gray button that says “Check for Updates".
    3. Please note: devices must be on, open, and charged to run updates. If the device gets closed or goes to sleep, the updates will stop running. If the battery life gets low, the updates will struggle to run.
    4. When the updates finish, restart your device.
