September 15, 20212min6570


DEKALB COUNTY, GA–DeKalb County announced today that it has launched a smartphone app, Edulog Parent Portal, to provide parents and guardians information about their child’s school bus ride. The launch of the new app follows the massive number of school bus drivers who did not report to work in the district’s Region on Sept. 10, prompting delays, canceled routes and chaos as parents scrambled to find alternate transportation for their children.

School Board Chair  Vickie B. Turner said staff members have been meeting with bus drivers to address their concerns about pay increase, pensions and challenges in transporting students who do not wear masks to protect themselves and others against  COVID-19.

District officials said the new app allows parents and guardians to follow their child’s bus on a real-time map and stay upto-date with notifications when that bus nears the bus stop, the school, or a custom alert zone. Parents and guardians only receive access by registering with data unique to their child.
