What people are saying about control Point
Control Point is simple to implement and supports school safety and efficiency. Our old method was gathering all students in two common areas and calling student names over a P.A. system. Control Point allowed us to increase safety measures including holding the students in the classroom rather than a common area and decreasing the access points from two exits to one exit. With the single access point you would expect the car line dismissal process to double. The Control Point dismissal system allowed the car line to go just as fast as it did when we were in two locations. Holding students in the classroom allowed for smoother communication and better use of the classroom time at the end of the day. The system will allow us to control student egress and support safe distances during the current safety concerns we face as we plan to re-enter school buildings.

Control Point Offers Safe, Secure And Efficient Dismissal Every Day!
At Control Point, we believe dismissal can and should be stress-free. A staff member scans the driver’s dismissal card and the teacher inside the building can see the child’s name immediately. Multiple lanes can be scanned at the same time.
Schools may choose the number of dismissal lanes that best suit their campus needs. Control Point is configurable to dismiss from one lane of cars up to six lanes of cars.
Staff members inside the building watch as flights are loaded with student names. They are then able to line students up according to their lane of traffic for more safe and efficient dismissal.
“Control Point made this year’s car rider duty so much easier. It is a very organized, systematic way of releasing kids in the afternoon to their parents. Each staff member on duty had a specific job they were trained to perform, which made everything run so much smoother. The kids were able to learn the routine after just a few days of school. Most afternoons, we were able to finish car rider duty within 15-20 minutes. Parents were happy with the procedure as well. I would definitely recommend Control Point to any school district that is willing to train their staff and give it a try. I’m confident you will be just as pleased as Montgomery Elementary staff members were this year.”

“I had the opportunity to use Control Point Dismissal for the past two school years along with summer school last year. I have assisted with scanning, placing students in their designated flights, and loading students in their vehicles to go home. I feel the system helps with time efficiency and student safety. Once the dismissal process begins, the system allows for each teacher to have a responsibility that is easy to access. Everyone knows their job, and it is easy to explain to a substitute teacher. Dismissal is done in 10 – 12 minutes start to finish loading over eight flights of cars. Student safety is our main priority, and with Control Point Dismissal teachers and staff know exactly where the student is located whether they are waiting in their grade level line, colored flight, or have been delivered to their vehicle. Many parents have stated to me that our car rider system is the fastest and best in the district.”

“I am very pleased with my experiences using Control Point. I have been part of the staff at two different elementary schools that have used the system for daily dismissal. On both campuses the system proved to be user friendly, efficient & safe. I’ve been an elementary school teacher for over a decade, and this is the best system I’ve seen or heard about aiding in dismissal! There is nothing more important than safety and accuracy when it comes to getting young students back home to their families at the end of the school day. I hope to continue using Control Point throughout the duration of my teaching career.”
“With Control Point the parent on record is given a card that states their name, driver’s license and phone numbers as well as a bar code. When the code is scanned the teacher on duty has complete assurance the person picking up the child is indeed the one who has a right to get the child. Grandparents, friends, neighbors, and carpool drivers may be given the right, by the parent on record, to take the child from school. The driver is given their own individual card with their specific information.”
