Keeping students in school is critical. The impact of students dropping out of school has far reaching effects, ranging from increased likelihood of crime, drug or alcohol abuse, reduced earnings and unemployment. There are also financial impacts to school districts related to truancy as school districts often receive state funding based on student attendance.
Administrators are therefore in need of ways to keep students in school to help them achieve their long term potential and ensure that the district receives necessary funding.
AT&T can help. AT&T offers a convenient Mobile Truancy Management solution that locates a student's wireless device. With the parent’s permission, administrators and attendance officers can access an intuitive web interface to identify the area in which a student is located. No application is needed to download and no software is required to install. Best of all, devices can be tracked on most major carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
Potential benefits of a mobile truancy management system:
Real time delivery to locate students using their own device
Students more likely to attend class if they can be located
Helps to increase access to available funding by improving attendance
