"The big advantage for us of School-links Early Notification is that it has made parents more aware of the issues. This has had a positive impact on attendance and there is a feeling of appreciation among the community. We use School-links with the KAMAR API meaning that our District Attendance Officer has access to the data. We can also pull individual student attendance histories for the Police Youth Aid Officer. School-links means all parties are better informed and attendance issues can be tackled head-on."
