School Dismissal Manager (SDM)

School Dismissal Manager
Safe, secure online dismissals for kids... without notes or phone calls!

Parents, if your school uses School Dismissal Manager (SDM), this app lets you schedule your child's school dismissal instructions for any day within the next two weeks. Your child's typical everyday instruction is already set, so only exceptions need to be entered.

Pick from your school's dismissal options and add a note if needed. Notify your school of your wishes in just a few seconds.

Get a reminder on days your child has a dismissal exception.

Your school will supply you with new login credentials at the start of the school year. Login, set your own password, then SDM is always only a click away.

If your school uses SDM's FastLane for car line management, you can check in from the car line driveway. Your check in calls your children from their classrooms and lets the car line admin know you have arrived. This makes your school's car line faster, easier, and safer for your children.

This app only works for parents in schools that use School Dismissal Manager (SDM) to streamline their dismissal process. For more information:
