Our students’ safety is the primary concern at East Guernsey Local School District. With that in mind, Z-Pass was implemented this year to help ensure the safe transportation of children to and from school and school related events. Z-Pass is a student ridership tracking and monitoring system that uses a radio frequency identification device on the bus and student cards to track the date, time and location of each student’s entry and exit from the school bus. Once students pass their cards in front of small scanner on the bus, their identification information is immediately available to the school district and to parents through a login protected website, text message or mobile device app.

Knowing when and where students get on and off the bus gives everyone that added peace-of-mind and a whole new level of assurance. To lean more, or to sign up for Z-Pass, go to www.zpassplus.com or contact Transportation Director, Julia Cunningham, at (740) 489-5100.
