Ohio County Schools is excited to announce that parents now have access to a revolutionary smartphone app to improve communication, school bus safety and efficiency.
The Edulog Parent Portal Lite app provides parents with information on the GPS location of their child’s school bus and sends them a push notification when the bus is nearing the child’s bus stop or other locations that the parent defines – such as the school or neighborhood entrance.
This app is free of charge to parents, caregivers and students. In addition to displaying the location of the child’s bus and sending the notifications, parents can also receive time-sensitive messages from the Ohio County Schools Transportation Department, such as when a different bus is running the route due to scheduled maintenance on the child’s regular bus.
The Edulog Parent Portal Lite app is provided by Education Logistics, Inc. (Edulog), a premier provider of school bus technology. School bus locations are sent from a GPS device installed on each bus which not only provides up-to-date information for parents but also for the school bus maintenance staff members who need to know the real-time location of each bus for maintenance and other service requirements.
The school system’s goal is to provide safe and efficient transportation for all Ohio County Schools students riding the school bus. By improving communication and expanding the information available to parents and caregivers by implementing this app, Ohio County Schools is working hard to meet and exceed that goal.
If you have additional questions regarding the app, please contact our transportation department at 304-243-0433.
