Creating Passes

1. Now vs. Future

Teachers can create passes for students. They can create a pass for Now or a pass for the Future. If a teacher wants a student to have a pass for right now, then he or she would select Now. If a teacher wants a student to have a Scheduled Pass for the future, then he or she would select Future.

  • Now: When a teacher sends a pass for Now, the pass is automatically sent to the student(s) and it automatically starts.
  • Future: When a teacher sends a pass for the Future, the pass can either be sent as a Pass Request or as a Scheduled Pass. Learn more about declineability below.

Declinability

When a teacher sends a pass for the Future to student(s), he or she has the option to let the students be able to decline the pass or not.

  • Declinable: Teacher sends a Pass Request to a student(s), and the student is able to decline the pass sent to them. Teachers do not have to input the origin location(s) of the student(s). Learn more about Pass Requests here.
  • Non-Declinable: Teacher sends a Scheduled Pass to a student(s), and the student is not able to decline or delete the pass sent to them. Teachers must input the origin location(s) of the student(s).

2. Select Student(s)

Teachers have to input the student(s) to whom they want to send a pass. Teachers can search all the students' names in the school and then select from the search results. Teachers may send multiple passes to multiple students.

Student Groups

Teacher can create groups of students to repeatedly send passes to multiple students. Teachers input the name of the student group and which students are part of that group. Teachers may also upload a list of student email addresses to quickly input a list of students. Teachers can only create and manage student groups on the web. On mobile devices, teachers can only select a student group to use during pass creation.

3. From where?

Teachers then select the room the student(s) are currently in. Teachers can search all the rooms in the school or select from a list. To make this process quicker, teachers can customize favorites in Settings.

Teachers only have to input this location when they are sending a Pass for Now or a Future non-declineable pass.

2. To where?

Teachers then select the room to which they want the student(s) to go. Administrators customize this list of rooms in the school set up. In addition, any rooms a teacher is assigned to will show up first in the listing.

5. Travel Type & Duration

Teachers select the travel type of the pass and the pass duration. Administrators customize both in the school set up.

Travel type: This indicates whether it is a round-trip pass or a one-way pass. For example, a pass to the Bathroom would be round-trip, since a student is going to the Bathroom and then coming back to class.

Duration: This indicates the maximum time the teacher expects the student(s) to need the pass.
