  • Watch List, a tool for recording parent communications, flagging students, and monitoring at-risk students;
  • Multilingual messaging capabilities via e-mail, fax, phone, SMS, and Web; and
  • Student file cabinets for organizing and tracking student data and appending related electronic documents and images.

Attendance Discovery is available now. Further information can be found here.
