Why do secondary schools text home?

indexIf a student is not at school on time (say 10:00am) then a text message is sent home by the school. This is routine practice in many schools and necessitates a range of processes, infrastructure, costs, false negatives and false positives etc…

How come students are not responsible for sending a text home to parents/caregivers themselves? Or (in many schools) with parents now able to see attendence records in real time – why don’t they just check themselves. If truancy is an issue then sending a text home is not the answer.

These are not primary school students….
