Project Description

 

ShuttleBee-3667

Imagine the wonderful world of attendance by facial recognition.

Today, your students' teachers and activity leaders make magic happen by managing your child's attendance through a manual process and often painful process.

When parents send their attendance updates, that information gets passed between several people by phone call, text message, walk-ins, email, smoke signals, and -- yes -- by ESP. 

And if a student isn't on location as expected?  Your caregiver will initiate a series of phone calls, texts and emails on-site, when that caregiver is also looking after other children.

BeeKeeper is also a n attendance solution for after-school programs, activities and field-trips -- any time your kids are on the go.  BeeKeeper is the mobile app to use when it's important to take attendance often and quickly because kids are on the move.

Support your care providers and support the development of our much-needed app! 

BeeKeeper is FREE For organizations to use.  Parents pay a reasonable annual fee per child, and can connect to an endless number of activities and events.

Our team is exceptionally concerned with security and are taking thoughtful measures to exceed COPPA requirements-- which govern privacy for kids.  An example?  Photos taken will not be stored on your caretakers phone, and parents control which trusted caretakers they connect with.

We're at the half-way mark to fund-raise for this app, but we need your help! 

Pre-purchase our app at a discount for $30 for your family.  Delivery is scheduled for this Fall.

THANK YOU for helping us make the lives of our caretakers better, and make our children's day safer.

Can you talk about security?  Our team is obsessed with security and are implementing thoughtful features -- photo images are not stored on the photo-takers phone, and BeeKeeper exceeds all security measures outlined by COPPA, the regulatory body that manages security for kids.

What if the photo of my child isn't up to date?  We've incorporated a work-around for manual check-ins.  This add time to the process -- which is a challenge with caregivers and teachers need to take attendance FAST, but we have included this step to accomidate.

Who will use the app?  We're asking parents to purchase the app because we know teachers, school districts and city/municipal-subsidized aftercare programs don't have the budget for extras.  For a small annual fee, parents can use the app to manage key contact information, and will receive notifications about their child's whereabouts when they move from place to place.  Teachers and caretakers use the BeeKeeper app for free.

What about attendance?  This is a pain-point for caregivers -- especially after-school providers -- who are responsible for managing the attendance for tens if not hundreds of children.  Our first version will allow parents to mark their child absent for 24 hours, which means that teachers aren't calling parents to verify kid's unexpected absences.
