School bus tracking through GPS

One of the most important responsibility of school administrators is to ensure that the students reach the school safely and in time and also return to their homes to parents. The route scheduling of transport, replacement transport vehicles in case of a vehicle getting out of service etc are concerns which school administrators have to take care of. In earlier days, there were situations when a vehicle gets into a problem and the driver is not contactable. The parents used to be worried and school administrators faced anxious moments. But no more. With GPS tracking of transport, TutMe has enabled the school administrators like never before. Image for GPS

With features like ability to send messages to parents of the students who take a particular bus route, the communication has become easy and effective. No more parents trying to reach school frantically. In fact, TutMe has enabled parents to track school bus of their child live from the app. With the security notification about the location, speed alerts and health of vehicles, one can ensure the safety of students even outside of the schools. The responsibility that schools has towards the safety of students is as much as of the parent to keep his child out of any trouble. The pick-up and drop-off notifications with driver information make the life of parents peaceful.

There are schools today, where students come from as far as 50 kms and use school transport to commute. The parents want the best education and for that even if a parent has to send a kid to a far-off place to study, he won’t hesitate. However, parents want to be in the know of child’s well being all the time. So while at home, he takes care of it and good schools ensure they take care of kid in the school-premises, there is an amount of uncertainty about bus journey. TutMe tries to help this cause with intelligent use of technology. The positive reviews by parents and school administrators alike for this feature on TutMe is very encouraging for us.

TutMe : How the school bus GPS system works-We recommend every single vehicle used for transporting school children should be fitted with a GPS device. Once the school transport has GPS device, TutMe app integrates the system with it using GPS technology. The technology integration helps the vehicle GPS system to communicate with TutMe app. As this happens and the TutMe app has a seamless flow of information among various stakeholders, the information flow happens quick and fast. This information can be configured for various situation, like, change in bus route, change in vehicle, delay in starting or reaching at pick-up/ drop-off point etc. Now imagine the peace of mind that a parent gets by being in the know all the times. So no more calls from the maid at the pick point to a mother or father in the office with panic of not having seen the bus at scheduled time.

The smart integrated with GPS communication facility is a much-liked feature with a lot of advancements in the TutMe app. Smart communication in all aspects of school life of a student, in real-time is a boon to busy parents because they can’t stop their schedule to change their plan and pick up student from school. With smart and effective communication always linking transport in-charge of the school and parent along with the school administrator ensure TutMe keeps parents completely informed at all time. This results in a more satisfied parent and therefore a parent who goes around talking positive about your school. Isn’t it great to get referrals and therefore get good students.

6 Reasons why School management app is necessary for your school

In course of my meetings with various school owners, I have come across a lot of questions and discussions. A recurring question, however, from most of the school administrators is as to why should they be using a School management app. I have tried to list down the most important 6 points why it is absolutely necessary for every school to use a school app like TutMe:

Communication – The power of communication has been felt by modern society like it has never been. While in older days, communication, specially between school administrators and teachers and students and parents was mostly verbal or through a notice on the notice board, it is not viable any more. Why? Because now, every school gets students from place which you can’t call as neighbourhood. So it is not possible for parents to be able yo meet teachers or come to see the notice-boards. TutMe helps this by incorporating strong suit of communication tools in the school app. Try these and you will realise how you missed communicating properly without TutMe.

Attendance record – Attendance is an important indicator to gauge how serious is a student towards the study. TutMe makes it one touch process to take attendance and ensure that the parents are updated about the attendance status of their kids. Now isn’t it great that teacher and parent are completely in sync on this. No more class-bunks. This
will certainly result in better academic outcomes. Now one can argue that attendance was taken in earlier days also and parents were informed, but then remember these were mostly neighbourhood schools and opportunities for bad influence were very limited. TutMe also ensures easy to understand graphic analytics basis the attendance record. So while you could check the attendance on register, but will it be possible to figure out on a rolling basis as to how many and which students have been missing what percentage of classes. TutMe has used state-of-the art technology to give this power in your hand and also. Even the parent has access to updated record of his ward.

Customised study material – Typically in every class where Tutme is being used, there are 25-40 students. Every available report suggests that in any class, there will be 3 kinds of students – those who are keeping ahead of the class and therefore are getting bored when teacher is repeating the same concepts for other two categories of students – Those who are just about maintaining pace with class level and those who are below class level.Whatever one tries, the class will have a minimum of 80% students in these 2 categories.Teachers always struggle to engage these 3 categories of students at their specific level of knowledge. But with TutMe app, this is simple. Just assign additional study material specifically for the students who are ahead of the class or behind the class.

Exam and result analytics – Believe me, while working with many schools, we realised the huge amount of student performance data that is available with schools basis the examination performance pf students. The same data read with attendance data and class-performance data is a huge indicator of where is the student heading? Alas,the
schools don’t use it. However, TutMe is that unique school app which ensures a great analysis of this data and presentation of the same in an easy to understand format. All this done without even clicking a button as it is an essential part of result module at TutMe. So don’t fret, take action and grab your phone to subscribe now.

Sharing school activity and achievements–Schools are where the kids go in their formative years. They don’t only study there but also indulge in a lot of activities – linked to knowledge, social behaviour and sports. Won’t you like to share all this with the parents? Good news is that TutMe has made all this a kid’sjob.Yes,absolutely.Click a few buttons and you reach information to all the parents. What’s more, you could decide to pass some information/ photos/ videos to be shared with the whole school, while some might berelevant only for a small section. With easily clickable items on TutMe app, getting and processing relevant information is a super-easy task for parents.

Fee management – And yes, a school can’t function without flow of funds properly. Fee creation and collection is probably the most arduous and unpleasant job in a school who doesn’t use a school software. Unfortunately almost all the school softwares have not been able to meet the requirements of schools with flexibility in this regard. TutMe does it perfectly. In fact, this is the most loved feature of TutMe as we discover from school administrators repeatedly. Now imagine creating a fee for each class in less than 5 minutes with complete flexibility. And follow up which doesn’t even take this much time.Just click a button and every student’s parent, who has not paid the fee gets reminded.
Also the fee dashboard is a great enabler.

So, do you still want to think and discuss if you should have school management app like
TutMe? I am sure with an affordable pricing and strong array of features, it is impossible for any school administrator to decide against using TutMe app. So wait no more. Pick up the phone or login at http://www.tutme.in and start using TutMe and live happily.
