BPHS to initiate the use of electronic hall passes
e-hallpass, by Eduspire Solutions, is now available through the Clever app library and can be used as an instant hall pass via mobile device or Chromebook.
Bethel Park High School in Pennsylvania will begin their trial run on Monday, 4/22, as indicated by Stephanie Kroll’s article in the school paper, the Hawk Eye.
Eduspire Solutions, an EdTech startup founded in 2016, has developed a web-based software solution that has garnered national acclaim. E-hallpass, praised for its ability to improve classroom management and safety, has transformed thousands of classrooms across the country. See how your school could benefit from access to real-time hall pass insights, enabling better tracking of student activity, behavior, security, and more.
Enhancing School Safety
Imagine being able to pinpoint the whereabouts of any student, anytime. E-hallpass gives teachers and administrative staff that ability. At a time when many schools are increasing security budgets, e-hallpass provides the peace of mind needed. “It’s an additional security measure,” said Adam Knaresborough, assistant principal at Thomas Jefferson High School in Pennsylvania. “Let’s say we had to evacuate and a teacher says, ‘Two of my kids are in the bathroom. I don’t know where they are.’ I could look and see who they are. I could see a picture of them, and it gives us that data real time of where they are so we can go find them.”
So How Does It Work?
E-hallpass is a cloud-based web and mobile application that allows teachers and students to create a digital hall pass at the click of a button, on any device and operating system. Instead of stopping class to scribble a paper pass, teachers can now acknowledge students’ pass requests virtually hands-free, with minimal disruption to instructional time.
