Your Apple ID?

According to Apple: "An Apple ID is your user name for everything you do with Apple: Shop the iTunes Store, enable iCloud on all your devices, buy from the Apple Online Store, make a reservation at an Apple Retail Store, access the Apple Support website, and more."
Apple's terms and conditions state that users must be 13 years of age or older to have a personal Apple ID. This means that prior to 13 years of age, the Apple ID associated with a child's iPad is the parents'/guardians' AppleID for that device, and not the student's. Consequently, we ask parents/guardians of children under the age of 13 to create and manage their child's Apple ID. Parents can decide whether to continue to manage their child's Apple ID once he/she turns 13 years of age.
With this in mind, you must use the student's school email address as the Apple ID. 
Additionally, the email address that is used for an Apple ID can always be changed (providing it is not an iCloud address) by visiting Apple's Manage My Apple ID page. So if you have already created an Apple ID and want to change it to your school email address, it can be easily done at this link.
