Adding Apps to Teachers iPads
When you want to start buying apps in the App Store for your teacher device, you can use the CUSD Apple ID you created. This Apple ID will not have a form of payment linked to it. You will only be able to purchase free apps unless you decide to link a prepaid gift card or credit card to this account.

Adding Paid Apps for Students
Paid apps may be purchased through Apple’s Volume Purchasing Program, or VPP, where most apps are 50% off for 20 or more. To see if the app you are interested in qualifies for 50% off, enter its name in the left-hand field of the link below. Click search, look through the results, and click on the correct version of the app, which will display the pricing details. (This link is for pricing only; purchasing will be done through your principal and the CUSD PR (Purchase Requisition) process.
