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
Even if it's not your busiest time of year, the chaos can be overwhelming. With School Dismissal Manager, reduce the front office chaos and end of day frustration for you and the parents. If you have a roster file of students and parents, you can be up and running in as little as 30 min.
