[prMac.com] St Paul, Minnesota – Good School Tools announced today that SeekerGST will be available in Q1 of 2018 for free! SeekerGST is designed to help in emergency/lockdown situations. We have provided this service as part of our GSTools app to LAUSD schools for nearly a decade. We are simplifying the input so that others may benefit from this extraordinary tool. A short list of 8 student identifiers may be entered via the app or imported from a .csv file created by Excel or Numbers.
Those eight identifiers include:
* Student ID
* First Name
* Last Name
This short list of identifiers is designed to allow for identification and release of students in emergency situations. It is also designed to be easy to enter so that each classroom can create a list in the app for their use. The apps can also synchronize data so that the entire school is entered. Alternatively, a consolidated list of the entire school can also be entered just like in GSTools.
SeekerGST information is kept on your phone just like in GSTools so you can access your critical information even when wireless networks are down; a likely emergency situation.
Peter Hastings, Assistant Principal at Paul Revere Middle School (LAUSD) said:
“Two days after GSTools was installed at Paul Revere Middle School, the computers were down at school. During first period, a student began to experience chest pains; concerned adults immediately called for the paramedics. I was with the student in the classroom waiting for help. I pulled out my iPod touch launched Radar in GSTools and looked up the student’s emergency contact information, retrieving home and work phone numbers for both parents. Both parents arrived before the ambulance, fortunately everything turned out okay and under control. The parents were thankful and impressed by the quick action taken. Having on the spot access to student data was helpful and that it certainly provides a necessary back up when the computers are down.”
