The infamous car line: Parents hate it, teachers dread it, and administrators spend way too much of their time managing it.
When it comes to adopting new technology in schools, one of the most powerful investments a district can make is in school dismissal software. Whether you’re looking to save time, improve communication, or keep track of students’ whereabouts, this game-changing technology may be for you. Keep reading to learn why:
1. Speed Up Dismissal with Fewer Staff
The platform notifies teachers to send the right student out the moment their parent or bus arrives. This reduces the number of staff needed to run dismissal and speeds up dismissal safely.
2. Increase Instructional Time
Teachers can redirect 15 minutes per day back into the learning process with a live feed of dismissal from their classroom. They get to spend less time on frustrating dismissal processes and more on teaching.
3. Make Instant Dismissal Changes
Parents can make changes instantly to how their student goes home using the parent app. This minimizes custody issues and builds in safety by giving parents the control of approved delegates during pick up.
4. Account For Every Student
When a student leaves by car, bus, walking, or to an after school program, it is time stamped and saved in a report. Their parent also receives a notification of their safe dismissal for peace of mind.
5. Manage It All From One Place
Whether you’re helping kids into cars or releasing students from the classroom, the platform lets you manage everything from one place, while integrating into systems and devices you already have.
6. Equip Staff For Emergencies
Whether you have a campus intruder or inclement weather, communication is key. Enable staff to act quickly with a suite of tools on their devices: emergency alerts, panic button, staff instructions, and location services to ensure student safety.
7. Communicate in Real Time

8. Minimize Front Office Calls
When plans change, parents can schedule and make updates from their app to how students will go home. This means no more office calls or miscommunications from notes to the classroom.
9. Manage Absentees
