EDUTRACKER PILOT HAS LAUNCHED!
We want to help you follow your child's journey from home to school and back again! We are excited to announce the SLPS EduTrack pilot has begun. Based on family and staff feedback, we saw a need to explore technology that would allow parents to track their child’s bus. Superintendent Dr. Kelvin Adams made a commitment to have a system up and running before we return to Central Standard Time on Sunday, Nov. 5, and we are happy to have met that goal. Our partnership with First Student has allowed us to explore bus location monitoring through the EduTracker pilot, which officially launched on Oct. 16.
The service is called EduTracker, and the buses of roughly 2,000 SLPS students are now being monitored by the system. If your child is part of this pilot, you should have received a letter or a robocall with instructions on how to register to use the tracker. Please note: If you visit the system but your child's bus is not one of the ones being tracked, you will be able to register, but you will not be able to receive real-time information about the location of your child’s bus. Based on the results of this pilot, we hope to eventually offer the system districtwide. If you are part of the pilot, we hope you will share your experience with us by clicking on Let’s Talk! and choosing EduTracker Pilot. Thank you!
