Parent training session pictureDuring a two-hour session Monday, Episcopal’s technology director George Terre showed McCawley and a dozen parents an app called Mobicip.
 
Mobicip is a web browser that allows parents to block certain websites and material from students. Once downloaded, the app takes away Safari and any other browsers the iPad may hold, forcing students to use only Mobicip.
