A good education starts with good attendance. Truancy Call helps schools reduce unauthorised absence and saves office staff the time spent chasing up parents to find out why children aren’t in school. Integrating dynamically with schools’ Management Information Systems, Truancy Call sends an automatic email or message to parents if their child has been marked absent. The system
continues to send these messages, even outside of school office hours, until a reason for absence is received. All in all, we’re helping schools improve attendance, reduce unauthorised absence and, perhaps most importantly of all, keep children safe.
