    In our small school district we have purchased iPads for our school board members and our administrators, including principals. The issue we are having is whether the iPad should be connected to each user's personal iTunes account, or whether we should have district accounts. I'm curious about how other school districts use their iPads. If each user has his or her own personal account, then what do you do when you need to add an app for district use? Or, if we have district accounts, does that mean the users can't add their own apps?

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Are the devices the personal property of the trustees and principals, or the school district?

    They were purchased by the school district.

    My hunch is the administration will insist district accounts are used for accountability. Trustees may have to submit app requests for approval.
