A new field trip bus scheduling program called the Travel Tracker is being implemented for all trips beginning May 1, 2021. The system is completely internet-based giving you access to the system at any time from a web browser. Teachers will now have the capability of entering their own field trip requests, which will not only eliminate paper but also will allow them to follow their field trip request through the approval process. They will have the ability to print customized parent permission slips. Coaches will be able to assure their buses for athletic contests have been scheduled, as they can view this information on a trip calendar. They will have visibility of all their trip requests immediately as well as a system-wide trip calendar.
If you would like to request meals from the cafeteria for your students to take on their field trip, please print the attached form, input student/teacher information, and deliver the request to your cafeteria manager.
At your earliest convenience, please register with the Travel Tracker application using the following link. Please note that the Travel Tracker link may also be located on the Fannin County Schools website.

Please watch your email for information about virtual online training for bookkeepers, school nurses, child nutrition, and users that will be responsible for approving trip requests.
To make the transition smooth, we have provided a link to our training video for teachers (found below) regarding how to request a trip as well as how to view your existing requests. If you feel you need additional training after watching the training video, please contact Stephanie Newman in the Transportation Department.
Please note that the Travel Tracker system also has a very helpful User Guide that can be accessed from the Support /Training Link in the upper right corner. This guide can also help you through your learning process.
