GoPad for Schools is an attendance solution for schools, camps, and other educational institutions, with features for security, communication, and data storage. With the aim of keeping educational administrators, faculty, and families of students connected, GoPad provides the tools for tracking attendance, managing compliance, storing medical data, preparing for crisis’, and tracking staff and visitors.
In order to track student attendance, GoPad allows staff members to check students in and out and displays the attendance of each classroom with students displayed as in, out, or absent. With GoPad, users can also keep a running log off all staff and visitor arrivals in order to ensure administration have an accurate number of people on campus at all times, and cloud-based backup provides real-time information, whether on campus or in other locations. Access to attendance information is critical in the case of emergencies such as evacuations, and, in the case of a crisis, GoPad provides users with emergency protocols for staff to follow, and contact information for every student.
Compliance can be managed with daily reports on attendance, as required by many state and local laws, and staff attendance logging can be used for labor compliance. The administrative tools within GoPad allow users to create profiles for each student which include contact information, emergency contacts, allergies, and caregiver details, and parents can opt to be sent email or SMS alerts when their child is released each day. Medical and nutritional data can be stored within GoPad so that all staff have access to critical information, and are empowered to make the right decisions when it comes to medical emergencies, or simple day-to-day choices.
I have already lusted them
Parents can sign in and out easily. It's easy to add information. It generates reports. It meets Health department requirements and improves safety for our children. Being on an iPad, we can easily take photos of all caregivers to add to their contact information. Besides attendance, if we go on a field trip or need to leave the building, all contact information and health information is right there for each child. The support is wonderful if we have questions or problems.
As we only have one IPad per class, It can take a bit of time at dismissal for parents to sign out and sometimes they get impatient but that's so much less important than all the positives.

-Easy to use
-Creates a safer environment with the attendance being known throughout the school
-The program will consistently pause to do updates or freeze to load when I have parents trying to checkout at dismissal.
-I have had parents complain that even after going through the correct steps, they are still not receiving e-mail notifications when their child is picked up
Ability to see attendance with a quick glance of the screen
Ease of use, quick response and assistance when needed. Easy way to see who/ how many students are still signed in/out
It moves the names/photos around so they are in a different order when I go to sign out a child. When this happens I sometimes hit the wrong person to pickup and therefore I need to go back
