Districts nationwide are currently preparing for the fall semester and some of the biggest concerns we are hearing are about social distancing and preparing for different scenarios for the 2020-2021 school year. Most school districts are in discussions of what the plan will be, but some states have already made statements about the fall . Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas has confirmed that students will be returning to school this fall. Additional states such as Illinois and Virginia have announced a return to the classroom as well, both notating that things will look different for students. It is expected that many states will announce further plans in the upcoming weeks.
The planned precautions that districts are putting in place are going to require flexibility for many departments, including transportation. We have been hearing from many districts that their current software or manual process either cannot match their needs or it will be extremely time-consuming to make adjustments. If the past several months have taught us anything, is that flexibility for last-minute changes will be a necessity.
Our main mission has always been to provide our customers with tools and features that increase the efficiency in their district. Since the announcement of COVID-19 and school closing in the Spring, our development team has been working to create new routing features, incase new procedures were introduced.
“And you know the biggest selling point is what you guys [App-Garden] offer. The people that stand behind it. The service you guys provide is second to none.” – Farmington School District
Be prepared for the upcoming school year with a Routing system built to handle the upcoming changes!
