Students and faculty need to register their iPad using SMM

Symantec Mobile Management logo
Symantec Mobile Management (SMM) is an app that allows our school district's technology staff to deliver apps, documents, and even wireless network passcodes to all of our school-owned iPads. It takes less than two minutes for a student or teacher to register their iPad using SMM. Once the iPad is registered, we can wirelessly push out free and paid apps to anyone at any time.

To begin, go to the App Store on your iPad and search for SMM. Look for the icon like this. Download the app to your iPad.

The next steps must be taken while you are in Fremd High School. You cannot complete this process from home. For those of you from one of the other four high schools in the district you can still follow these directions, but you will need to be in your own school.

Open the SMM app. Click OK or Accept to every question it asks of you.

Now you need to enroll yourself with the SMM app.  The first box asks you to enter an email or a URL. Do NOT use your email address. Enter this exactly as it appears: and then click on Enroll. If you are at a different high school, use your school letter code (i.e. phs or chs). Click on Accept to any questions it asks you.

Enter your username and password into the SMM app. The username is d211/ followed by your username. For teachers, it would look like this d211/ksorensen and for students it will look like this d211/sorensen2120 with the four digits being part of your specific computer username. If you do not remember your username you can ask your teacher or visit the technology center. The password for teachers is your usual computer password, and for students it is your six digit ID number. Click on the Enroll button to continue. Click on Accept to any questions it asks you.

Continue installing the app by clicking on Accept, Continue, or Install to every question it asks you.  When you get to the box that says Done you can click on Done and close the app.

It can take up to an hour for your wireless keys to download.  In the meantime, continue to use the guest network.  If the school is pushing out apps then the apps will appear in a self-service portal in SMM but it can take up to an hour for those to appear as well.
