SmartDrive PROMISE – Information for Schools
School Year 2018-2019

All High School programs recognized by your state Department of Education are eligible to participate in SmartDrive PROMISE programs.

Upon request, the SmartDrive Foundation will provide business card sized “PROMISE Cards” for distribution to all 9-12 grade students. Click here to see an oversized example of the PROMISE card.  School must provide enrollment figures for each grade (9-12) so the appropriate number of PROMISE cards will be delivered.

All students in grades 9-12 art to make the SmartDrive PROMISE online through this webpage –

The SmartDrive PROMISE program will be open from March 1, 2019 to May 3, 2019.

SmartDrive suggests that a single SmartDrive PROMISE day be scheduled – with PROMise Cards distributed to all students on that day.  In schools where use of personal electronic devices is prohibited during the school day, students should be urged to make their SmartDrive PROMise immediately following the end of the school day.

SmartDrive will collect the following information from each student:

  • Student First Name, Last Name and Suffix (if any)
  • Student Grade (9-12)
  • Student Birthday (for demographic tracking and other SmartDrive program offerings)
  • Student’s Email
  • Parent/Guardian Salutation, First Name, Last Name and Suffix (if any)
  • Parent/Guardian Email
  • Parent/Guardian Mobile Telephone Number (if Parent does not have an email address)

SmartDrive collects this information securely in compliance with our Privacy Policy. Parent contact information is required for all students as Parents will be notified by email or text message when their student makes the SmartDrive PROMISE.

Students can make their SmartDrive PROMISE through Friday, May 3, 2019.

In the 2018-2019 school year, all students who make the SmartDrive PROMISE will receive a Texas Roadhouse® Reward in the form of a coupon for a FREE menu item sent to the student’s parent via email.

In the 2017-2019 school year, high schools may participate in the SmartDrive PROMISE student participation challenge.
