School-links Early Notification (EN) System is the solution.
Step 1: Your Attendance Officer simply selects the students with an unexplained absence in your student management system (edge or KAMAR).
Step 2: your student management system (SMS) assembles a file with student names and caregiver contact details and sends it to the School-links system which distributes the EN messages via text and email. No more time wasted on the phone tracking down parents.
Step 3: Parents can quickly text a response to the alert. Text is ubiquitous, cost effective and less embarrassing then explaining over the phone that they forgot to notify the school.
Step 4: Alerts and responses are automatically recorded in your SMS. Your Attendance Officer opens the report, codes the absences, and the job is done – in a matter of minutes.
“It is a fantastic service. It saves us from having to ring everybody – it is completely automated,” - Tony Sears, Waiheke Deputy Principal, High School
The contact data in edge and KAMAR syncs automatically with School-links daily. You seriously just click a button!
