Tardies can be a never ending problem especially where there are no consequences and no communication with parents/guardians. SSICA can help you address this issue and bring your numbers down by processing all tardies using the SSICA app. How? Administrators, support staff and teachers would use SSICA to process students coming in late to school. When you process the tardy using the SSICA app, SSICA will send a text message to the parent/guardian and an email. The text usually arrives in less than 3 seconds to the parent/guardian keeping them informed of the tardy. What you will notice after a few weeks of doing this, parents/guardians will get involved each time their student arrives late to school or to a period; as a result, the amount of tardies will begin to decline.
A school who currently uses SSICA use to have about 150 students come in late to 1st period. After using SSICA for two months, the school had days where zero students arrived late to 1st period. At SSICA we believe if you want to change student behavior, the parent/guardian needs to be involved in correcting the student’s behavior. Imagine if you had to call or message parents for each tardy? With SSICA, each parent/guardian is notified via text. Research shows that parents/guardians read a text message in the first 10 minutes. Here is a sample text message the parent/guardian would receive:
SSICA can also automatically assign lunch detention when the ID card is scanned by the team because the student arrived late to class. Reducing tardies is possible with SSICA and because tardies are decreasing your students’ grades will increase with a final result graduating rate increases. Since the student is in school, your ADA ($$) also increases. Just like Joe Williams, Assistant Principal, from Silverado High School told us, “SSICA pays itself and more” because of ADA increase. Help lower your amount of tardies at your school by using SSICA.
