Field Trip Best Practices for NYC Schools

New Operoo NYC Blue Card
(Available Summer 2021)

Syncing with ATS to provide a single easy view of the fullest range of student health data, emergency contacts and deepest set of visual insights possible

Operoo empowers schools to automate and manage operational processes with digital workflows for parents, staff and students. And, when it comes to managing student safety and wellbeing, nothing is more important. That’s why we’re updating our Digital Blue Card to ensure authorized staff and parents / guardians have universal access to the fullest range of student health information and insights possible; anywhere, anytime, from any device.

Operoo’s updated Digital Blue Card is designed to complement the announcement from the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) regarding the capture of student medical data in the Emergency Contact Report (RCON) within its Automate The School (ATS) administration system.
The NYCDOE has introduced a new way for parents and guardians to update emergency contact and student health information via their official NYC Schools Account (NYCSA). We have been expecting and welcome this positive step towards digitization, which allows parents / guardians to append data throughout the school year. Operoo’s overhauled Digital Blue Card works alongside this NYCDOE initiative, enhancing the digital experience for school staff.
