BANGALORE: The Samhita Academy (TSA) is a quality school built on an inclusive model of education. It is one of Bangalore’s first private schools that was developed on the principle of RTE (Right to Education) much before the government bill was passed. The institute hasrealised the growing need to enhance child safety systems in schools and to automate the class attendance process. The app is developed by an Education Solutions company and is being piloted at The Samhita Academy in phases.
The cloud-based platform combines the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags for students and their authorised guardians. The platform uses visual identification of parents, guardians and children as an additional layer of authentication. The technologywill track each child who is received in transport, their attendance in school, boarding back for return and safe handover to authorised parents and guardians. It will alert parents about no show for boarding, unsupervised drop off and other events through SMS and alternate notification mechanisms.
