school account

A Managed Apple ID used to sign in to a personal device, sign in to a shared device, or to access Apple services and portals (for example, iCloud, iTunes U, Apple School Manager and Schoolwork). School accounts are owned and controlled by a school or district. The institution can reset passwords, limit purchasing and communications, and set up role-based administration.

Note: A school account is referred to as a Managed Apple ID in the Schoolwork User Guide for teachers.
