The SMART Tag program improves safety and security for bus riders by leveraging technology with more streamlined student management and communication on school buses. Parents of bus riders should register for the SMART Tag Parent Portal.

    * For security reasons you must have your student's ID number when registering.  This can be found in Skyward as OTHER ID.

    ** Email transportation@dsisdtx.us for help registering a second parent portal.

    The parent portal offers the following benefits for families of DSISD bus riders:

    • Confirms that a child boards and exits a bus as expected
    • Registers the parent for Smart Alerts, which sends a text message to a designated cell phone when the bus is approximately 10 minutes away from the bus stop
    • Designates guardians to meet young riders (PK-2nd) at the bus stop 

    To register for the Smart Tag Parent Portal, parents should have the student's ID, date of birth, campus and grade available.
