Text Alerts to Parents

Parents who are made aware of their children’s school attendance and about upcoming texts are more likely to address these items early and help their children succeed in school.

Proposal

  • Requires school districts to notify parents by text message of a student who is absent
  • Requires school districts to notify parents by text message at least two days before a test that will affect the student’s grade point average
  • Parents may opt out of text notifications
