BENTON – The Benton School District has begun piloting StudentConnect, a transportation management program. StudentConnect provides a safe and secure transportation system to and from school which increases general attendance while providing security that gives parents peace of mind.

Parents receive instant messages to their mobile devices when their child boards and/or exits a school bus. All messages are received within 60 seconds of the bus departing its designated stop.

Benton is the first school district in Arkansas to pilot this program. It is part of the district’s safety plan to increase the ability to track students who ride the bus.
