Truancy and Early Notification

One of the projects over the last year has been the introduction of early notification to parents of truant students via txt message generated by the absences software. Thinking back to my college days and the odd bunk that may have occurred - had cellphone technology been around I think there may have been a bit of a rethink by the perpetrator if the primary caregiver got a txt messages minutes after the roll identified one as missing from class. What I'm looking forward to next is recieving a message from my kids school when an assembly or sports event is cancelled. Back on topic - any hard evidence that early notification is having impact on truancy?
