Big picture


As Vanguard, iPads are provided with UNLIMITED data plans, which is part of the prestige of being on Vanguard! We are very lucky that Fulton Co. Schools values the work we do and provides such a great resource. Vanguard Leadership knows these are a valuable tool used everyday and taking up iPads isn’t something taken lightly.

Vanguard will be doing its First Inventory Audit. Our iPads have to be managed, organized, and tagged in order to be enrolled in Airwatch like other district devices.

To make this as easy of a process as possible for all involved on April 11, 2018, ALL Vanguard iPads will be collected. Since this is our first collection of iPads, we are forecasting your iPad to be gone for approximately a month. But again since this is our first time collecting to this extent, it may take longer. After we get all iPads collected, we will assess the timeline and communicate the return of iPads as soon as we know more.

In advance, thank you for your time preparing your device and patience while the inventory audit is completed.
