Broward Parent Link
Broward Parent Link was installed at the District's Technical Service and Support Center (TSSC) during the first 9 weeks of the 2004-05 school year. A group of pre-selected pilot schools tested the system during the second 9 weeks of school. Also, training in the use of the system began in late November to mid December for all other sites. The system has been available to all schools for full use since the second semester of the 2004-05 school year.
This solution gives schools and departments the ability to:
Automatically deliver truancy notification calls to student's homes.
Deliver phone and email messages about school functions and other non-emergency alerts.
Deliver phone and email messages concerning school or District emergency situations.
The system was designed to minimize the work schools do in their efforts to remain compliant with truancy notification requirements, and provide them with a new tool to promote connections between schools and the homes of their students. No new hardware is needed in schools or departments to access and use this web-based solution. The data used by the centralized system is the data already entered in the District's Student Information System every day. There is no charge to schools utilizing this service.
