• Jamf Parent is an app you can use to manage your child’s school-issued device. Using Jamf Parent, you can choose which apps your child uses on their device and set app restrictions outside of school hours (M-F 7:00 a.m. -2:30 p.m.). This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to add your child’s device with Jamf Parent by scanning a QR code from your personal iOS Device (Apple iPhone or iPad).


    • Jamf Parent is currently compatible with iOS and Android devices. Parents and Guardians seeking the ability to set restrictions without access to a personally owned iOS or android device should contact the dean of students by emailing: deans@woodstockacademy.org
    • If two or more adults want to manage the same child's device with Jamf Parent, you must close and reopen the QR code on your child's device before scanning the QR code on another adult's device.
    • Restrictions set by the Jamf Parent app are NOT active during school hours (M-F 7:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.). If you feel your child needs restrictions during those times as well, please contact the dean of students by emailing: deans@woodstockacademy.org

    Getting Started

    1. Download Jamf Parent from the App Store on a personally owned phone using the links on this page.

    2. On your child's WA-issued device, open the app titled "Self Service".

    4. Open the Jamf Parent app on your personal device.

    5. Tap "Get Started".

    You can now manage your child's device using the instructions below.


    Allowing and Restricting Apps

    Jamf Parent allows you to choose which apps your child can use on their school-issued device. You can allow and restrict apps on your child's device by tapping the child device you want to restrict, and then tapping or clicking the Restrictions tab. You can either restrict apps by categories, such as social media or games, or specific apps, such as Safari. To restrict apps by category, use the toggles under Allowed App Categories to allow or restrict certain app categories.



    To restrict specific apps, tap Restrict Device Functionality use the toggle next to each app to allow or restrict certain apps.



    Enabling App Lock

    You can use App Lock to set a timer for app restrictions. While your child's device is in App Lock, they will only be able to use the apps you allow during the specified time period. If you only allow one app, that app launches on your child's device and they cannot exit the app until the App Lock timer expires.

    When using the Jamf Parent mobile device app, you can enable App Lock by doing the following:

    1. From the dashboard, tap the child device you want to restrict.

    2. Tap the Restrictions tab.

    3. Tap Enable App Lock, and then set the timer and tap the apps you want your child to have access to.
