AP introduces app to monitor attendance of school students


Amaravati, Jan 18: In a bid to ensure that students of govern-ment schools in Andhra Pradesh do not play truant, the state gov-ernment Monday launched a spe-cial mobile application to monitor the regular attendance of the stu-dents in all the schools. 

The app was designed to review the students’ attendance, which can be accessed both by the teach-ers and the parents. Officials said that 90 per cent of the information pertaining to the guardians and their wards has been furnished into the app. The application will send an alert message to the parents about their child’s attendance on a daily 

basis. The same message will also be sent to the village and ward vol-unteer an integral cog in the de-centralisation of governance sys-tem introduced in the southern state. “If the child is absent for more than two days, a volunteer will visit the household and ascertain the reasons,” said the official. Besides, there will also be a monthly review of students’ 

at-tendance in the presence of parents committee, village or ward volun-teer and education and welfare assistant. Andhra Pradesh is laying sig-nificant emphasis on education with schemes such as Nadu – Nedu, – Amma Vodi and others to invest in the future generation.
