The Absentee Module is your tool to automate and streamline the administration of absence notifications and responses between parents on a daily basis.

Two-way messaging school to parent

Automation does the work

The Absentee Module reads absentees automatically from your Student Management System and sends communications to parents of absent students each morning vis email (and, optionally, SMS). Capture the reason for absence and anything else you need. Returned forms are available within a student’s record, as with all other EdSmart forms.

Tracking and reminders

Track the delivery, opening and response rates for messages, and access an up-to-date, complete history of student absences whenever you need to. Schedule absentee notification times and schedule recurring reminders to ensure parents respond.

Integration into school systems

The Absentee Module is fully integrated into your existing Student Management System and carries your school branding. Busy parents don’t need to download and register yet another app or tool.

Katrina Barracu - Executive Assistant, Launceston Christian School
We were delighted to use EdSmart because it integrates seamlessly. We love that it’s not just another stand-alone, separate silo technology. That's why we're such a fan – we didn't want more silos of data.
