New Tools for School Bus Riders

Families Can Opt Into New Reader Cards

Article Date: Aug 31, 2018

New this year, Bend-La Pine Schools families will be able to opt into a system that will allow them track when their child enters and exits the school bus with the new Radio Frequency Identification Device cards (RFID).

Participating students will receive a unique card embedded with a chip. Students will scan their RFID cards when entering and exiting the bus. The scanner will log the location and time of entries or exits. Parents can view this data using the MyStop app.

Interested parents or guardians can fill out the RFID consent form.

Upon completion, parents can drop off the form with their student's school or with the Transportation Department between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
