In continued partnership with our transportation provider, First Student, Tecumseh Public Schools is launching FirstView®, a bus tracking and parent communications app for your smartphone or desktop. TPS is beginning the roll out of the FirstView® app at Tecumseh North and South Early Learning Centers on Monday, February 18, 2019. Parents can register their accounts this week. The app allows for:
- Live Tracking
The FirstView® map screen shows you the live location and direction of your student’s bus, your student's stop schedule for the current day and timestamps for school arrivals and departures. You’ll know when the bus gets to school in the morning and leaves in the afternoon!
- Predictive Stop Arrival Times
Analyzing route and real-time GPS data, it determines an estimated time of arrival to your stop provided on the FirstView® map.
- Custom Alerts and Messages
Set up push or email notifications alerting you when your student's bus is a chosen distance or number of minutes away from your stop.
- Multi-Stop View
Buses for all your students can be tracked with FirstView®. Using individual colors for each student, every selected stop appears on the map simultaneously for easy viewing.
- Additional User Notifications
Connect up to three additional email accounts to receive email alerts. This is a great feature for grandparents or caregivers!
- Available in French & Spanish
- Secure and Easy Access
FirstView® requires a password-protected account for app set-up. This way, only you can view your student’s stop!
