APP that can email or text message parents when a child arrives and exits a school bus
System is a reaction to reading about "two Kansas employees were fired after leaving a 19-year-old student with severe disabilities alone on a bus for nearly 6 hours, according to the Kansas City Star" and "GAPS apologizes to family of child left on bus".
Research shows this as a common nationwide problem.
Beta system works by having a child scan his name badge in front of a smart device, which sends a parent an exit notification, most importantly the system has a help "call" button to be used if the child is locked in a school bus.
Spok to a few users interested with this system, with your help we can go BOOM!
