Learn why tracking student tardies and early releases with iVistior Management is more efficient

In fact, so far in 2022, Ident-A-Kid customers have used iVisitor Management to track over 11.5 million student tardies and early releases! Let’s take a closer look at why tracking student tardies and early releases with iVistior Management is more efficient than your clipboard.
Tardy Student Tracking
Why Use iVisitor Management for Tardy Student Tracking?
Accurate student attendance tracking is crucial for every school. School grading and funding are both impacted by overall attendance. We often hear from school staff that there are big waves of tardy students in the morning or that students leave important fields blank on the sign-in sheet. These scenarios draw out the process and make it more difficult to gather student information.
Switching to iVisitor Management for tardy student tracking simplifies the process and ensures you get the information you need. You can customize the tardy process to scan student IDs for faster check-ins, automatically print hall passes when complete, and even sync student tardies to your School Information System*. iVisitor Management can be used in a kiosk format to allow students to check themselves in, saving your staff time while also guaranteeing you capture the info you need.
How does tardy student tracking work with iVisitor Management?
Tardy student tracking with iVistior Management is very easy. By default, iVisitor Management stations have a tardy check-in badge enabled. You can customize your tardy student tracking process in your Web School Manager. Examples of what you can customize include:
- Having students scan their IDs to gather their name
- Automatically printing a hall pass when the tardy check-in is complete
- Asking for a reason for the tardiness
- Requesting a parent’s signature
- Taking pictures of students at the time of check-in
- Customizing available answers for your check-in questions
Your tardy students can be checked in for the day with just a swipe of a badge or a few clicks. That attendance information is automatically saved to your Web School Manager and is available for downloading or export with the Activity Reports module.
Student Early Release Tracking
Why use iVisitor Management for student early release tracking?
The benefits of using iVisitor Management for student early release tracking are similar to tardy tracking. In addition to being faster and easier, iVisitor Management improves your safety protocols for early dismissals. Safety checks, like custody, sexual offender, and Nogo (banned/monitored person) checks, are performed automatically for individuals before students are allowed to be dismissed. You can also capture important information for your records, like a digital signature and photo.
