Dismissal staff need to let students know when their transportation has arrived to pick them up. Historically this has been done with bullhorns, intercoms, or radios; creating a disruptive and stressful environment for staff and students alike. Moreover, when information is not heard or understood, it creates confusion and delays. Too often everyone is bombarded with irrelevant information and subsequently unable to hear information that applies to them.
Silent Dismissal remedies all of these problems by providing a simple method for transportation arrival to be recorded and disseminated to the appropriate individuals, without noise or confusion.
Silent Dismissal advances this concept further by providing mechanisms for recording and displaying non-standard changes to those persons affected, using names rather than obscure numbers or codes.
