Truancy and academic performance is based to a large extent on the absence of an effective communication system between administration and parents/guardians.
With MyTxtBox schools are given a direct means of communicating with parents/guardians. a school’s administration can communicate with pupils, parents or other teachers quickly, conveniently and cheaply. SMS communication is a very cheap option for schools (as an SMS costs just a fraction of a phone call). Its cost is unbeatable when compared with post mail, press and broadcast advertisments.
Administration can send updates to parents regarding the following:
Absenteeism: SMS will be sent to parents alerting them about their ward’s absence from school.
This will be used to complement existing notification systems or as an alternative.
