School districts interested in offering SchoolBot have two options: Deploy and maintain this code on their own servers, or purchase a subscription to schoolbot.io, a deployment of SchoolBot hosted and supported by Vermonster.
Our hosted SchoolBot service is available to any school district that meets the basic requirements. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing.
Regardless of whether you subscribe to the schoolbot.io service or host your own installation of SchoolBot, the basic requirements are:
- School buses must be tracked using Zonar Ground Traffic Control.
- Students must be assigned to buses in your student information system using a unique bus identifier that is also present in Zonar.
- You must have a way of regularly exporting (and anonymizing) bus assignment data from your student information system to the SchoolBot API.
See the onboarding guide for a detailed checklist of requirements to set up your school district on the schoolbot.io service (or on your own installation).
See our FAQs for answers to common questions about SchoolBot and the schoolbot.io service.
See the hosting documentation for guidance on setting up your own installation of SchoolBot.
