Manage and secure student arrival, attendance, and dismissal operations
School-Pass is a unique software platform used across the country to enhance student safety, while dramatically improving student arrival, attendance, and dismissal operations at K-12 schools. Parents have mobile tools to manage and communicate daily arrival/dismissal changes across carlines, buses, after-school activities, car services, and walker groups - reducing the administrative burden by 85%. Most of all, school administrators and parents instantly know where students are scheduled to be on campus, and where they are going at the end of the day.
The School-Pass platform has the breadth and depth to support private, public, and charter school systems
Empower parents to manage and communicate arrival and dismissal changes to staff and teachers - all from their computers or smartphones. Save your school thousands of administrative hours, while keeping everyone informed of changes. Over 85% of inbound calls, emails, voicemails, and hand-written notes are eliminated.
Carpool pickup schedules can get real crazy! Allow parents to manage their pickup schedules in multi-driver carpools. Carpool driver schedules impact dismissal efficiency, so make sure the correct students are scheduled for the intended driver in carline. Parents can now add and manage their authorized drivers.
Manage formal or informal after-school activities. Control how parents move students to activities. Use an easy one-click cancel feature - parents receive notification and students are automatically moved back to their default carlines and buses. Check students in and out of activities (with or without signature capture), and optionally send attendance notification to parents. Activity leaders receive attendance summaries when the activity closes. Use actual attendance data to ensure billing accuracy.
Make sure you have the right students on your buses! Parents, teachers, transportation teams now have a single bus boarding instruction to manage - resulting in faster bus boarding and on-time departures. Optionally, send parents an e-mail or text message when the bus leaves the school once all students are accounted for. Maximize bus capacity and profitability, while helping to control which students can board certain buses using our unique trip type and count algorithms.
Eliminate noisy PA systems, walkie-talkies, and crowded pickup areas by automatically identifying buses and parents/drivers in carpool line using RFID/Toll tags or license plates, and notify teachers in dismissal locations or classrooms when to send students to carline or bus pickup areas. Daily changes and driver schedules are seamlessly merged into real-time dismissal schedules to reduce dismissal time by 50%.
Perfect for summer school/camp dismissal!
Enhance student safety and campus security by screening vehicles driving onto your campus using automated license plate technology and RFID/Toll tags to notify you of their arrival or departure. Automatically announce parent arrival during afternoon dismissal. Get an instant alert when an unwanted license plate is detected on your campus - 24/7. Most Toll tags across the country supported.

Notification is automatically sent to the student’s teachers, the front office, parents/drivers in the family or carpool, and to any other designated school staff member.

Instantly know where students are on your campus
Integrate daily student changes, class schedules, and active attendance data in classrooms to instantly know where students are scheduled to be on your campus. School administrators can instantly know where a group of students or individual students are on campus. Parents can now become more involved with student attendance data – why – because it’s active data, and not merely used for historical reporting!
Afternoon dismissal can now be safer, quieter, and 50% faster
Schools can use dynamic carline reports or real-time schedules during afternoon dismissal. Parent names can be displayed in dismissal locations by automatically identifying drivers using RFID/Toll Tags and License Plates – or a staff member can walk the carline and enter the drivers in line via a mobile device (if readers or cameras are not installed). Daily changes (made by parents or school staff) flow seamlessly onto reports and real-time dismissal schedules in classrooms. Eliminate manual identification and noisy walkie-talkie type announcements inside the school building! GPS-based parent check-in available soon!
Easily manage students who are participating in activities
Create, manage, and easily share robust activities with parents and teachers. Allow parents to easily add students to 'open' activities. Use accurate 'live' activity rosters or electronic checklists to check students in/out of their activities, with or without signature capture to facilitate accountability and to automatically capture billing events. The school can now cancel an activity – automatically informing parents and moving students back to their default buses or carpools. Activity leaders receive attendance summaries when each activity occurrence is closed out, and parents can get notified when a student is not checked into a planned activity. Other features include: custom schedules, enrollment limits, occasional use options, cost allocation, monthly billing, and more...
Accurate bus boarding and notification tools for on-time departures
School staff or bus drivers can now use electronic checklists (on mobile devices) or use dynamic bus manifests during morning drop-off or afternoon dismissal. Parents can be notified of the child’s boarding status, and transportation departments/staff can receive a bus boarding summary via email as buses arrive/depart. Regular and shuttle routes/stops are supported, including bus capacity limits. Our unique BusPass feature helps to maximize bus capacity and profitability, while helping to control which students can board certain buses using trip types and counts.
Real-time Campus Traffic Monitoring and Driver Screening (24/7)
Enhance campus security and student safety by automatically identifying vehicles and screening drivers (parents, staff, teachers, high school student drivers and visitors) as soon as they drive onto your campus. Vehicles are identified 24/7 using license plate cameras and RFID/toll tag readers. Get alerts when unwanted vehicles drive onto or off your campus, and control campus access by opening gates based on driver type access rules. Get control of vehicle access on/off your campus today!
The School-Pass platform is flexible and scalable. You can start with the Cloud version, and scale to the Campus editions if and when you are ready. No matter the version you implement, you get to leverage the full software platform (all modules). The only difference is the decision to install RFID readers or ALPR cameras. No matter your school type or specific requirements, you can use one or all modules, and upgrade at any time.
