Parent Information - Safe Stop Bus Tracking App is Available

posted Nov 21, 2017, 12:21 PM by Roz Walton   [ updated Nov 21, 2017, 12:32 PM ]

The school bus GPS tracking software, Safe Stop, is available for parental access and has been active since Monday, November 13th.  A Parent User Guide is available by clicking here.  Access codes were sent home with students and provided to administrators at each school. If you still need an access code, simply contact the principal of the school where your child attends and ask for the code, download the app and start using.

As we venture into the implementation of this new software, please keep in mind that Safe Stop is intended to portray an estimate of where the bus is at that point in time. Parents and viewers should not rely on the bus routing app as an accurate timer to send their student off to the bus stop

The Transportation Policy refers to a 10 minute window on either side of the expected time of arrivalThe GPS software is merely another tool that gives parents an estimated time that the bus will arrive.  This could be especially helpful if a bus is running late for any reason.

There are still a few school buses without GPS and there will be language that indicates that the GPS is not yet available for that bus.  Additional GPS units will be installed upon receipt.

Your input is needed!

The ASD School Committee is developing a plan to provide teachers in grades 7-12 additional development time.  This time will allow teachers to master and implement proficiency-based system and to develop more customized learning plans for students. This proposal will affect grades 7-12 only. Elementary will continue to have half day Wednesdays during full weeks of school.


A study group made up of teachers, parents, administrators and School Committee members has been working on a proposal for how to structure the development time within the existing school calendar.  It is the goal of both the study group and the School Committee to maximize student class time and minimize any negative impact caused for families by the proposed changes.  Please take a moment to respond to the survey below or by accessing the survey link. The survey will remain open through October 20th.


You can share your survey responses in one of two ways:

  1. Return the paper copy to your school office; OR

  2. Access the survey online through this link -  http://bit.ly/2kJP7Gi


The results of this survey will be used to guide our final proposal to the School Committee.


Thank you for your time. We value your input,
