CrisisGo Safety iPass

CrisisGo's Safety iPass offers the utmost streamlined and secure way for schools to manage a full-scope of COVID-19 safety needs. As the result of our COVID-19 Crowdsourcing & Safety Research Project in early March 2020, Safety iPass is used by more than 500,000 users every day - providing the technology needed to manage safety protocols, immediate response to incidents, and return to school safely while in a world that is still greatly affected by COVID-19.
 
Similar to a "fast pass" for airports and services, Safety iPass speeds up the ability to confirm the safety status of stakeholders while monitoring school safety information for data-driven decisions. With Safety iPass, schools of all sizes can cover the full spectrum of COVID-19 safety needs; with pre-screening, entry management, actionable reports, Vaccination Record Management, Close Contact Listing, and immediate escalation upon outbreak. Safety iPass conforms to CDC and any other specific COVID-19 protocols, helping your school comply with local COVID-19 guidelines and laws.

How Safety iPass Works

  • Parents pre-certify students daily by clicking on the pre-scheduled email/SMS and completing the COVID-19 survey questions and temperature check at home.
  • Students, staff, and visitors are quickly verified by the CrisisGo app using a digital badge or other select student ID badges.
  • Fast entry method allows students to get to class safely and quickly, helping improve social distancing risks of congregating during the entry process and avoiding potentially unwanted weather conditions.
  • Monitoring student and staff COVID-19 symptoms allows the district to act immediately when a positive COVID-19 test is reported.
  • Built-in Close Contact Tracing tool immediately identify students, staff, and visitors who have been in contact with a person that has tested positive.
  • Admins have the ability to view and approve submitted vaccination records, monitoring if your students and staff are fully vaccinated.

Tools for a Quick and Secure Entry Process

Daily Pre-Certification

Design and schedule daily pre-certification emails. Students receive Email/SMS notifications to complete the COVID-19 symptoms report and optional temperature check, immediately receiving their virtual Entry Badge via the CrisisGo app, Email, or SMS.

Entry and Area Validation

Student validation occurs in a protected area as they enter the building and is then completed by scanning the students Entry Badge in the CrisisGo app or with another pre-determined ID badge. If a student does not have a badge, a simple student look-up via web browser will provide entry validation.

Safety Data Monitoring

Easily monitor student, staff, and visitor health statuses, flagging anyone reporting positive for COVID-19. Next, reports are escalated to school health services and start the Close Contact process - immediately notifying anyone exposed and taking proper action.

Vaccination Record Management

Allows students and staff to submit vaccination records for verification, giving admins the ability to view and approve submitted vaccination records to monitor their vaccination status and stay HIPAA compliant.

Close Contact Listing

Safety iPass synchronizes with Student Information Systems (SIS) and utilizes the data from Entry Badge scanning. Our advanced hybrid scheduling module accurately determines potential exposures, confirming COVID-19 cases through Close Contact Listing.

Works for Every Stakeholder

Students

Speed up entry into the facility and reduce the time students spend in lines getting their temperature checked at school and answering questionnaires.

Staff

Gain your staff's confidence that all people entering the school have gone through pre-certification at home or manual certification at the school. Reduces the time for staff to enter the facility, and staff have an up-to-date picture of student health risks in their class.

Visitors

Control access to the school for all visitors. Encourage all visitors to not attempt to come to the school facility when sick to reduce the risk of exposure to students and staff. Manage vendors and contractors with the same simple approach.

Have a Question About Safety iPass?

  • How much will Safety iPass cost?

    Safety iPass is $6 including Contact Listing, or $4 without Contact Listing per user with no activation or training fees. Discounts available for existing CrisisGo customers and in large volumes. For an exact quote, get in touch with us.

  • How will I know if my child has an in-person or remote schedule today?

    If your student participates in a hybrid learning model, your child will typically be assigned an “A” cohort schedule or a “B” cohort schedule. These schedules are tied to the roster and school calendars, so you will be sent a reminder on your self-certification email whether your student should go to school or is assigned as a remote learner on any particular day.

  • Does Safety iPass support multiple languages in the daily screening survey?

    Yes. The screening questions, emails and iPass badges can be created in different languages including: English, French, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Vietnamese, Swahili, Arabic, Urdu, Korean, Kinyarwanda and Rade.

  • Where is the badge scanner located?

    The badge scanner can scan both QR codes and barcodes. The scanner is located in your CrisisGo app on your smartphone. Press the “more” button (three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner). Scroll down to the tab that indicates “Badge Scanner,” and it will turn on your scanner. The scanner works best with QR codes, but barcodes also work well.

  • What is the best screening method for elementary students?

    Parents should complete the survey screening questions daily for pre-certification, allowing the school to verify their health status before entering. Alternatively, schools can produce ID cards with the student's photo, and a QR code can be scanned to verify their entry status. Lastly, schools can print out a daily roster with a barcode associated with a student to verify status.

  • Does staff need to report and certify every student daily?

    Yes. For the same reasons, students and visitors need to complete the self-certification survey, and staff will need to complete the survey each day.  This provides a daily status for each staff member, allowing the district and public health to spot trends. It also helps identify staff members who have symptoms at the earliest possible opportunity, even if they are teaching remotely.

  • How are visitors pre-certified?

    If the visitor knows they are coming to campus, they can pre-certify by clicking on the link on the school’s website. Visitors can also certify manually once they arrive at school by following the school’s established procedures.

  • Can students use an existing ID badge for entrance with their QR code?

    Yes. If they have completed the pre-certification survey, they can use their student ID with a barcode or QR code to show their status.  They can also certify manually at school should they need to for any reason.

  • What is close contact tracing?

    The close contact tracing software allows you to identify those students, staff, and others who may have come into contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.  This feature allows the school and public health officials to make notifications and investigate possible exposures and the need to have certain people isolate themselves to help prevent the spread of the virus.

  • Can I preview the Safety iPass experience?

    Yes, you can experience Safety iPass yourself by clicking here and generating your badge. You can play with different survey answers to generate various badge types.
