SmartPass, the leading provider of digital hall pass and student movement management technology, announced that it has been named as a winner of this year's Tech & Learning ‘Awards of Excellence: Back to School 2023’ in the Secondary Education category. These awards are bestowed annually by Tech & Learning to products that offer schools versatility, value, and solutions to specific problems to support innovative, effective teaching and learning.

SmartPass, founded with the help of students, teachers, and school building leaders, allows educators to seamlessly approve, manage, and monitor student movement related to out-of-class activities. Students can use one-click technology to submit a request and, in turn, teachers can instantly approve or decline, as needed. With new capacity to create queues, limit access to specific areas, and prevent disruptive or unsafe encounters, schools are finding SmartPass to be a high-impact resource for improving behavior and overall school culture.
Peter Luba, Co-founder and CEO of SmartPass, gratefully acknowledged the recognition and praised the schools that take a forward-leaning approach to managing student movement, “We’re thrilled that the experts at Tech & Learning see in SmartPass the same thing that over a million educators and students across the country see everyday. They know that, with the right technology, schools can enjoy quieter hallways, safer student movement, and easier time management. We also know that this can be done without limiting student access to individual resources, flexible schedules, and important safety protocols. It’s a privilege to serve students and teachers and an honor to see SmartPass recognized by Tech & Learning.”
School leaders recognize the importance of student access to critical services outside the classroom, from restroom breaks to special services such as counseling, nurse visits, and college and career readiness. With that said, the increasing complexity of student services has demonstrated the need for a faster, more streamlined approach to approving and managing student movement. Along the way, SmartPass empowers students to make good, academically sound decisions about when and where they can get the most from their school day.
SmartPass brings together Digital Hall Passes, IDs, Flex time, and Attendance to create a unified, panoramic view of student movement throughout school buildings and across school campuses. 1M+ educators and students, in well over 1,000 schools, are using SmartPass to maximize instructional time and decrease disruptions, making student movement easier and less stressful for everyone.
