How is the school administration and school security notified?
School administrators and school security are notified via text message. Text messaging is faster than an email and generally will reach recipients even when a phone call doesn't.
What if a student is dismissed to a faculty member who is not at school?
This is not allowed. If a faculty member has not yet logged into Student Fast Pass, then the faculty person's name will not appear in the list of available faculty & staff.
However if a faculty person is a member of a "Group", like guidance, attendance, nurse's office, etc.... and that faculty person has not yet logged into Student Fast Pass, then the dismissal will be allowed if any other faculty member of that group has logged into Student Fast Pass.
Can substitute teachers use Student Fast Pass?
Yes, substitutes, using the classroom teacher's computer, logs into www.studentfastpass.net with their email and password. Substitutes should be able to dismiss students with less than one minute of training and will dismiss students exactly as a classroom teacher would dismiss a student.
When a substitute logs into www.studentfastpass.net, the substitute is required to select which teacher they are substituting for. This becomes important because if another staff person dismisses a student, they will not likely know who the substitute is, but they can dismiss to the absent teacher. The substitute will receive the popup notification on their computer.
