How To Restrict Messages & FaceTime on Student iPads?

Parents have the ability to either restrict or allow text messaging in the Messages app and FaceTime video calls. Here's how to do it:

1. Sign in to PowerSchool with a Parent account (if you are a parent and do not have a parent account, you can request one here).
2. Once you are signed in, go to Student iPad (left side)

3. In the search field, search for "messages" and then click on Apply. Once you see "Restrict Messages and FaceTime" click on "Install App". This will install a restriction on the student iPad that will hide both the Messages and FaceTime apps. If you ever want to allow those apps, come back  and "delete" that same app restriction - those apps will then reappear.
