Lamar CISD is implementing the SMART tag system for students beginning the 2020-2021 school year. This system provides live monitoring of where and when students load onto and unload off of their school bus to keep transportation, school administrators and parents informed. Additionally, SMART tag integrates with other Lamar CISD systems to allow students to use the badge in the cafeteria and to check out books in the library.

Lamar CISD’s SMART tag system will be implemented in phases, beginning first with transportation, then campuses and finally with parent access. The phased roll-out will be used to ensure quality of data. Parents will be able to access the SMART tag parent portal by the end of September. For more information, click here.
