Dash Education Solutions, a leader in innovation of school operational and safety technology, recently released the latest version of DashPass, a contact-free student dismissal system. Available just in time for the 2020-2021 school year, DashPass is the only automated student dismissal manager system with patented technology designed to protect teachers, staff and students with advanced social distancing features.
“Today’s demands for social distancing throughout the day make safe and contactless student dismissal even more crucial,” stated Jorge Agnese, Dash Education Solutions President. “Managing the rate of student release while they await pickup is integral to meeting CDC standards and keeping everyone safe,” he continued.
DashPass is a mobile student dismissal web-based system that utilizes either a direct data connection to the school’s Student Information System or data uploaded by school administration staff through an easy-to-use template. Everything is accessible on mobile devices and desktop computers.
Parents and other authorized drivers use the free DashPass school dismissal app to notify the school of any changes in pickup or early release requests, eliminating the need to enter the school office and easing the burden on school staff. When the authorized driver enters the school’s designated pickup area, the student’s teacher gets an automatic notification to release the student from the classroom. The student walks directly to the car for immediate pick up, following social distancing guidelines the entire time. Curbside congestion is virtually gone, and the entire dismissal process is seamless.
“For almost 10 years, DashPass has made the student dismissal process at all our campuses safe and efficient. As we begin to welcome students back to Franklin Academy following the COVID-19 pandemic, DashPass continues to prove to be the right solution for our dismissal process that extends the safety and security features we’re putting in place at all campuses,” said Dr. David Thomas, Franklin Academy’s Chairman.
The free DashPass Pickup school dismissal app for drivers is available on the App Store and on Google Play.
