Private schools require specific tools and solutions to ensure they are giving their students a best-in-class experience. Our student dismissal system was built by a private school administrator from the ground up to meet the unique needs of private schools. They wanted to provide a world-class system for tracking student dismissals via car, on foot, by bus, and even rideshare!

FetchKids works flawlessly with various types of independent or private learning instruction such as traditional private schools, parochial schools, Montessori schools, language immersion schools, Waldorf, private and special education schools. In addition, our system can integrate with a multitude of other tools to allow for myriad configurations for privacy, security, communication, coordination, integrations, reporting, and more!

HOW IT WORKS for PRIVATE SCHOOLS

  • 1st – Using their desktop computers, school staff configure their settings, import lists of parents and students or integrate with your Student Information System (SIS).

  • 2nd – The Primary Parents receive a customized invitation from the school that includes instructions on how to download the application and use it. The Primary Parent has the rights to manage his/her own profile and the pickup schedules for his/her children. The Primary Parent may invite “authorized adults” to join pickup teams for his/her children and the school knows these people are all authorized.

  • 3rd – The after school pickup staff knows at a glance where each student needs to be for dismissal. They can view on the app or print comprehensive lists detailing each child’s daily dismissal plans by grade, class, dismissal method, (including exceptions), or after-school activity.

  • 4th – Because all primary parents are securely authorized, parents are empowered to make last-minute changes to pickup schedules without burdening the school staff. All changes are made through the FetchKids platform and are stored in history, reducing school liability and administrative time managing joint custody situations between sometimes non-communicative parents. Changes in schedules for children with joint-custody arrangements can be made easily between divorced parents, or with the involvement of the school based on the student account settings. 

  • 5th – For pickups, staff can use the app on their personal smartphone or a school-provided tablet with their school-administered credentials to manage on-site pickups in the designated areas. They match the pickup person with the information for the student in the app and can quickly collect signatures if required.

Any type of student after school dismissal can be tracked:

  • Car Pickups – Pickups Arriving list and map view keeps school staff informed as to the parents’ geographic location and arrival time. The Primary Parent and school are sent notifications as each pickup is confirmed by the school staff.

  • Walking Pickups – are the same as car pickups as parents can start the app once they are ready to leave for the school on foot.

  • Busses – Parents get an alert when the student gets on and off the bus.

  • After School programs – Parents can easily notify the school when children should be sent to after care. Alerts are sent when the child is picked up from afterschool programs. 

  • Carpool – Alerts are sent to all Primary Parents of the children in the carpool, as well as the Authorized Adult who has initiated the pickup (if he/she is not a Primary Parent)
