 These actions will have a negative impact on the flow of dismissal and will result in a longer dismissal duration for all parties involved - teachers, other staff, students, and parents.

 +  * __Using a Generic Account__. When multiple staff members use the same account for managing dismissal accountability is lost. It becomes impossible to identify which persons may benefit from additional training and guidance necessary to improve the dismissal flow and reduce the overall duration.
   * __Entering Pick Up ID Numbers too rapidly__. If the pick up IDs are entered more rapidly than students can be loaded into vehicles then the number of students waiting outside will become too large. This results in an unsafe condition for the students and makes the loading of vehicles slower as students begin to socialize rather than watching for their own vehicle.   * __Entering Pick Up ID Numbers too rapidly__.

   * __Using the intercom or radio when a student does not arrive__. Silent Dismissal should be silent except in the event of a emergency situation. When the process is circumvented through the use of individual student calls outside of Silent Dismissal it becomes impossible to correctly evaluate the status of dismissal to make long term improvements.   * __Using the intercom or radio when a student does not arrive__.

   * __Ignoring the Current Day Group Roster__. Students may have an override for the current day to keep them from riding on a bus or a van; conversely they may have an override to ride a specific bus or van. For this reason it is imperative to ensure that the students getting on the bus correspond to the dismissal roster for the current day. Do not take the assurances from any student; the information as recorded in Silent Dismissal determines where a student should go at the end of the day.   * __Ignoring the Current Day Group Roster__.

   * __Allow Parents to Provide IDs Verbally__. Sometimes a parent from another family will be under the mistaken impression that they should pick up their own children along with some other children. If a parent is authorized to pick up other children then the student override should reflect this or the parent should be in possession of the pick up ID placard. Additionally,​ some parents are not allowed to pick up their own children due to a court order. By using the Pick Up ID number placard exclusively these problems may be avoided.   * __Allow Parents to Provide IDs Verbally__.
