Please review the following items about iPad storage maintenance:
SAHS APPLE ID POLICY
- Student devices are only to be logged into their SAHS provided student apple id accounts.
- Devices not logged into sahs apple id accounts risk the storage of non-school related files and/or apps. Students found with these materials/apps on their devices will be subject to the appropriate disciplinary measures.
- Students who violate this policy are responsible for removing all media and other non-sahs related files from their SAHS devices.
- All SAHS students are personally responsible for maintaining their own device's file storage.

- It is recommended that students are diligent in their organization of files. It is a good idea for students to categorize their files via sub folders (school year, quarter, subject, etc.) Organized files/folders make it easier for students to archive files for future reference or delete files that are no longer required. Doing so will keep a student's iPad's storage capacity at a manageable level.
- Files on a student's Google Drive should be archived/purged periodically throughout their career at Saint Anthony's High School. This is especially important at the end of the school year. Students must develop a maintenance schedule that best suits their requirements in order to keep their device operating efficiently. A device that is overloaded with unwanted/unnecessary files will not function correctly.
- Students should monitor the storage of large files such as video, audio, and high resolution images. These large files should be archived or purged as soon as they are no longer required.
- Google Drive storage in an iPad has its limits. Files in Google Drive will accumulate and consume space just like a video or other media file. Google Drive files must also be managed periodically to ensure iPad efficiency.
- Notability notes are stored in Google Drive in .pdf format and should be considered in regular storage management.
- Families must research which method of archiving/transferring files from their student's device best suits their needs.
** A student should purge files only if he/she is certain that they are no longer required. **
