Update your SDM (School Dismissal Manager) App

SDM is how American Academy families manage attendance notifications and end-of-school dismissal instructions for their child(ren).

SDM allows you to notify us of attendance events such as absences, late arrivals, and early dismissals. You can also manage your child's end-of-day dismissal instructions to reflect where they need to go when school ends: Carpool, Walker, Homework Club, Crash Club, or ECA/Athletics.

 

The school's attendance phone number and our front office staff are available in the event you are unable to use SDM.


The SDM Mobile App is required for guardians who pick-up their children in the afternoon carpool line. Use the app on your smart phone to check-in for afternoon pickup. This step notifies the school you have arrived in the carpool line and we can dismiss your child. You may also use the app to change dismissal instructions and assign your child to another AA family's vehicle if you choose to carpool with other AA families.
