Once your school has converted to the Freedom Model, there are 2 options to base the selection of the recipient for SMS messages regarding unexplained absences. Without making any change, the recipient will be based on the previous Back Office logic (Option 1)
Within the communication settings of the “Freedom – Student and Caregiver Management” control, schools are offered more granular options. Individual or multiple caregivers can be selected on a per child basis.
After selecting the student…
- Go to the communication menu
- Select the Student Based tab
- Choose who will receive the SMS message
When you are satisfied that you have made all necessary adjustments for students , you need to change the “Absence-Early_Notification option to “Based on Student Management [*Freedom Only]” for these setting to take affect.
