I wanted to reach out to say thanks for all you did for us during our first year with School Dismissal Manager and FastLane. We were very happy with the software and felt that it eased our dismissal/carpool time tremendously. I asked for feedback from our teachers towards the end of the year, and it was all very positive! Both homeroom teachers and the Special Areas who assist with carpool were very positive about the system as a whole.
Using School Dismissal Manager has streamlined our end of the day dismissals tremendously! Parents, teachers and administrators are loving the new system. Implementation was smooth, quick and easy. We have experienced less daily phone calls, missed notes and general confusion. The entire staff at School Dismissal Manager have been very supportive; walking us through every step and always quick to respond should a question arise. I highly recommend switching from the old manual system to this user friendly modern technology!
The more I use this system the more I fall in love. Seriously, this has changed the scope of my job. I feel very secure in having a place to enter student's after school directives that eliminates the opportunity for human error. It is surprising to me how much time in my day was spent on phone calls and writing info down and then re-writing it at the end of the day. Our parents are already using the system and we are getting positive feedback. For those who do not have email or just refuse to use the system, entering it for them is so fast and easy. Our bus drivers also prefer the full report over shuffling through multiple bus passes. Thank you for making our days run smoothly and efficiently. SDM is amazing!!
At the end of the day I simply walk to my buses and dismiss them. My office staff then listens to the radio of other schools trying to locate children and then casually pack up and depart stress free. Dismissal Manager has truly helped us evolve into a 21st Century model operation.
I spent my the better part of my day creating a bus list in Excel taking calls, checking emails and reading notes (some illegible) from parents. I don't worry about making a mistake and sending a student home on the wrong bus anymore. I simply print my list and hand it off to the bus monitors. I would never want to go back to the way it was before School Dismissal Manager!
School Dismissal Manager has eliminated the abundance of parent notes and phone calls that would come in on a daily basis, allowing more time for me to get many other tasks accomplished. It is definitely a great program and one that all schools may want to look into in the future.
I love it! It has been so easy working with these guys and now that we have the new upgrades in place, dismissal is going to be even smoother! I'm working on getting our whole district on Dismissal Manager!
If I ever tried to get rid of SDM there would be mutiny among the administrative staff!
Five years running now…can't imagine not using School Dismissal Manager
School Dismissal Manager has been a great improvement by making our dismissal process more efficient and, more importantly, safer
