***It is important that you check with your teachers on how your school is using SmartPass, as you always want to follow the directions and rules set up by your school.

Logging In

When you need to log in, you will head to and enter your credentials. If you are unsure, ask your teacher. If your school has not bookmarked this for you, now might be a good time to do this! Your school may also have you access SmartPass a different way, so make sure to ask!

Student Home

When you log in you will see your home screen. Across the top you will see your Home and Calendar tabs, as well as the buttons to create passes and schedule passes.

In the middle of your screen you will see your upcoming passes. These could be passes you asked for, or that a teacher or other adult in your school has written for you. Be sure to check here often!

If you need to adjust settings, you can find this in the top right of your page.

Creating Passes

Remember, it is important to always follow school rules when asking for, and making passes, so check with your teacher on the correct process to do this.

After you have secured permission to leave the room you may access your device and SmartPass.

Begin by clicking the green Create button in the top corner.

Next you will want to fill out the information for your pass by selecting where you are leaving from, where you are going to, and adjust the time.

Once your pass is ready hit Start Pass.

At this point you will want to follow class procedures on what to do next. Your teacher may want you to turn your device towards them, or even set it up on their desk. At this point you can quietly leave the room.

Upon return, quietly click "End Pass" and return to learning. It is that quick and easy!

By clicking the request you can learn more about this request and respond by accepting or denying the pass. You will need to put in your starting location to accept.
