CONCORD — A web app for parents and school administrators that helps manage the after-school dismissal process has won a tech startup competition sponsored by "Live Free and Start" in N.H.
Maria Edvalson of Mont Vernon, founder of "PickUp Patrol," and team members are meeting on Tuesday with Gov. Maggie Hassan and a roundtable of Live Free and Start advisory council members and others.
The goal is to connect Edvalson with resources to help accelerate her business.
Edvalson says most schools use notes and a phone call system to process changes in children's dismissal. She says her cloud-based web application "calms the chaos of afternoon dismissals."
