Students Logging into the Internet at Home

This year Juab Junior High School is using a different Mobile Device Management System (MDM) on the 7th and 8th Grade iPods and iPads. One of the new features with this new system is that the iPods and iPads are filtered at the school, home and all other places. This has made it a little harder to log into the Internet and has caused some frustration. We are sorry for the inconvenience. With a new system there is always a few bugs to work out. Please be patient.

Here are some steps to help you log into the internet at home.

Student Usernames and Passwords

When you live in a digital world it seems like you have a million usernames and passwords. Well it is no different with the students in the junior high school this year. Each junior high school student has 4 different usernames and passwords. Students and parents should record these login credentials and keep them in a safe place. This article may help in clearing up some of the confusion.

Email
Students can log into email on their iPod/iPads or go to https://www.juab.k12.ut.us and select Student Email Login under the Parents/Students Section.
User Name: (Example) This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Password: 6 digits either numbers or letters

iPod/iPad Internet Login
So the filtering will work effectively on the iPod/iPad student will need to log in so they can use the Internet at home. (Outside the school's network)
Username: (Example) lastnamefirstname With no spaces or capital letters.
Password: Same as email password. 6 digits either numbers or letters

Logging into School Computers
It is the same as the iPod/iPad Internet Login.
Username: (Example) lastnamefirstname With no spaces or capital letters.
Password: Same as email password and iPod/iPad Internet Login. 6 digits either numbers or letters

PowerSchool Username and Password
Students can log into PowerSchool to view live scores, grades, assignments, attendance and more. To login go to https://www.juab.k12.ut.us and select PowerSchool Login under the Parents/Students Section.

Juab Junior High School 1:1 Device Program

Juab Junior High School recognizes that access to technology in school gives students greater opportunities to learn, engage, communicate, and develop skills that will prepare them for college, work, life, and citizenship. We are committed to helping students develop 21st-century technology and communication skills. To that end, we provide access to technologies for student and faculty use.

As part of Juab Junior High School's ongoing efforts to provide all the tools necessary to prepare our students for excelling in the 21st century, all students are in a 1:1 device program.

This year Juab Junior High School is using a different mobile device management system. This MDM has many great features like strict filtering on internet site whether the student is at school or home, a custom App Store that only installs apps approved for 12 year olds and younger, a custom app store that only allows approved apps and not games, and wireless management. On the other hand with a new MDM comes some growing pains. There will be some minor issues, but we will be committed to solve them as quick as possible. Thanks for your patients.

Setting Up An Apple ID
JJHS teachers and administrators have established a set of iPod/iPad apps. Some of the apps are free and some will cost money. The paid apps will be provided to JJHS students at no cost. The paid apps will belong to each student's Apple ID. These apps will be installed on the student's devices during the year. Students must have a personal Apple ID account in order to install and update these apps.

What is an Apple ID?
An Apple ID is the login you use for just about everything you do with Apple, including downloading apps from the App Store and accessing iCloud to store your content. You will not need a separate account for all these things, just one Apple ID.

You may already have an Apple ID that you use for private use or your parent or family member has one. If not, the steps how to create an Apple ID for you to use for school are included below. Please note it is not necessary to have a credit card linked to your school Apple ID.

It should also be pointed out that students must be at least 13 years old to create an Apple ID. Parents of students who are younger than 13 should create an Apple ID with their student and observe the installation of applications on their child's behalf.

Parents of students under the age of 13 will need to share the Apple ID and Password with their student, so they can install apps onto the iPod/iPad during the school day that will be needed for classroom instruction and activities. This shared Apple ID will allow parents to monitor and control which apps are being installed onto the iPad.

If parents don't have access to the Internet they can come to the school and receive help on setting up an Apple ID.

School personnel will help with setting up Apple ID, but Apple ID passwords are strictly private and only students and parents should know it.

2.   The “Wheel”

- This program is set up to reward those students who are positive citizens in their respective classrooms.  It is valuable to have students on time and in their seats when the bell rings, completing and turning in assignments on time, and filling our their student planners each week.  When a student exhibits these behaviors they are eligible to spin “The Wheel” for prizes during lunch on Thursdays.  Teachers will award spin passes as they see students demonstrating good citizenship.

BULLYING – Definition: When a student or group of students purposely does something to someone else that would:

CELL PHONES / ELECTRONIC DEVICES  

Cell phones may be used before or after school and during lunch.  The rest of the time they need to be turned off.  If they are used at any other time or if they go off during class, they will be taken and your parent or guardian will have to come and pick them up.  If there is reasonable suspicion that a phone, iPod, iPad, Kindle, Tablet, or other electronic device contains materials that are deemed harmful or inappropriate to any student or if students are using these devices as a means to access inappropriate material on the internet or to break school rules, they will confiscated and / or searched.  Harmful and inappropriate materials may include but is not limited to pornography, suggestive pictures, and cyber bullying.
