NHCS to Launch EDULOG App Parent Portal for Tracking Buses


 
 
New Hanover County Schools (NHCS) has partnered with Education Logisitics (EDULOG) to provide access to a Parent Portal for tracking their students’ school bus arrival times.  The new parent portal is available for parents to use now; however, we ask parents to not rely 100% on the app until our go live date of January 2, 2020. Until then, we will be testing and troubleshooting any potential issues.  
 
“The EDULOG App will provide critical real-time data to parents,” stated Eddie Anderson, Assistant Superintendent of Operations.  
 
Education Logistics (EDULOG) offers school bus routing software solutions, school bus GPS tracking systems, student ridership, fleet and driver management solutions, and more.  EDULOG’s integrated software for school transportation will improve accuracy, efficiency, and safety for New Hanover County Schools.  EDULOG has been a leader in transportation routing for the past 40 years, providing school districts with a parent portal that works in conjunction with the GPS tracking system on each bus.  The game-changing tracking application is secure and easy to use and will provide parents with the following information:
 
  • Where’s My Bus?
  • Bus Arrival Notifications
  • Planned Stop Information
  • True Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA)
  • Customized Messaging
  • Personal Notifications
 
“Parents may access their child’s transportation information through the smartphone app.  The parent portal will reduce the need for parents to contact the transportation department to check on the status on their bus.  We hope by providing parents with secure access to this information, it will reduce some of the anxiety when there is an issue, whether that be a personnel issue, a routing concern, or mechanical problem,” stated Ken Nance, Director of Transportation.
