District: Large County Public Schools District, 50,000 students

Description: Distribution of school bus schedules to parents


Solution

ZippSlip’s Schedules module. The process now goes as follows:

  • An administrator creates a form in ZippSlip and imports data from the districts’ bus schedule application. The created form then builds individualized schedules for each student.
  • The administrator makes the form available on ZippSlip for viewing by parents.
  • Parents simply view the schedule for each student including pick time and location for the morning, and drop off time and location in the afternoon.
  • Schedules may have multiple hops for students going to magnet or special ED schools.
