Quickly & Accurately Account For Students

Dynamic attendance software enhancing school efforts against chronic absenteeism and promoting student achievement.

CURRENT SCHOOL REALITIES

Frequently Reporting Inaccurate Unexcused Absences & Tardies

In recent times, many districts have encountered difficulties in bringing students back to classrooms, leading to a decline in educational standards. 

Each school day holds significant value in a student’s academic journey. Research highlights the pivotal role of teacher effectiveness in fostering academic success. However, even the most effective teachers cannot make an impact if students are absent from class. If your school is still using daily attendance robocalls, you may be overlooking innovative strategies that could improve attendance rates and elevate student achievement.
