A Curb-to-Curb Stop has to be set by a student’s residence. In other words, it is a Stop that has the same address as the student’s home. This is often due to the student’s special needs but there might be other reasons such as the isolation of residences in rural areas.
Compass customers have the option to quickly create Curb-to-Curb Stops with the Student Management tool, instead of the Stop Management tool as it might be expected. The Student Management tool is accessed by clicking on the Students tab.
Before creating Curb-to-Curb Stops, users need to select the Students to whom such Stops will be assigned. To review how to find Students, read the tutorial Finding Existing Students.
Once the search is done, users can select the Students from the resulting search list by checking off the selection box next to their Student ID. The selected Student will be highlighted in yellow. By clicking the search icon (magnifier) in the list, or the corresponding Student icon on the map, a window showing Student’s information is displayed on the Student’s residence location.
Since matching Students are disclosed on the map on their residence locations, these can also be selected there with the Select tool. To do so:
To create the Stop, make sure that the Student you want the Stop to be assigned to, but not other undesired Students, is selected. You can easily see this by checking the yellow color of the icon on the Map and/or the Student record in the search list. Then, click on the Curb-to-Curb Stop button.
After you click Curb-to-Curb Stop, a new window showing the fields required for the task appears.
To complete this:
Once finished with the first section, move on to the second one and:
Enter the Effective date.
Select Attending, Summer, Zone or Selected School from the drop-down menu.
Select the appropriate type of Education (General, Especial or Magnet Programs).
Check any additional information boxes if required.
Click OK. The new Curb-to-Curb Stop will be created and the selected Student assigned to it.
