How Minga Hall Passes Work in the Classroom

Here is a simple workflow for uninterrupted classes:

  1. Ask Permission - Student asks the teacher's permission to go to the bathroom or for a drink of water. (This represents 90-95% of typical hall pass usage)
  2. Approval - Teacher responds with "yes, go ahead and create your Hall Pass" or "no" and the process is over
  3. Create Pass - Student creates their own 5 min hall pass on their mobile device or school approved device (Chromebook...) and shows it to the teacher to confirm
  4. Use Pass - Student can depart with or without their device. Staff who request to see pass may view on the student's or their own device

How Students Create Their Own Hall Passes

When a student has been given verbal permission to use a Hall Pass to leave the classroom, they can create their own Hall Pass.

The passes that are permitted for student creation will be available for students to create a 5 minute pass or whatever Default Time you've set. 

The pass will be visible on the student's Digital ID with a countdown timer on their own device (phone, Chromebook etc) or from a staff member's device.
