Students’ absenteeism often leads to drop out. Also, teachers’ absenteeism is a major concern for quality education. However, the absenteeism reporting system in most schools relies on daily paper-based attendance of children as well as teachers. The data is then complied on completion of the year. This lag in data reporting is an inhibitor in planning preventive measures for out-of-school children. There is a need of a real-time reporting system on school attendance that will result in automatically sending data from all schools to a centralized database for further analysis and presentation, for monitoring patterns of absent students and prevent such students from dropping out of school.
