Subject: Apple School Manager upgrade (VPP Enhancements) coming soon -
upgrading is optional
To: Dan DelVecchio <[log in to unmask]>


Dear Educator,

At the Apple Fall Tech Update in October we discussed some enhancements
coming to the Volume Purchasing Program.  Recently an email was sent out to
the Apple School Manager administrators letting them know an upgrade will
be available soon.

The upgrade, when available, will not be mandatory.  There is a new support
article  HT208257 <https://support.apple.com/HT208257>  called “About
migrating to Apps and Books in Apple School Manager” that will help you
prepare for the release of Apps and Books.

As a reminder, we are still running the weekly WebEx seminars.  Once the
ASM upgrade is released (probably this week), the Friday WebEx session, Apple
School Manager (ASM): Buying Apps and Books, will be updated to address the
changes.

Should you wish to join us for any of the following WebEx seminars you are
welcome, details are as follows.
