Parent Notification System: Teleparent Educational Systems. Software, $1.85-$3.75 per student per year

TeleParent's automated parent notification system uses professional translators to convert and record over 700 prerecorded messages in 22 languages--from Spanish, French and German to Russian, Hmong, Haitian Creole and Vietnamese. By using native-speaker translators, it eliminates the need for districts or schools to secure their own translator or risk sending inaccurate messages through a text-to-speech system. Messages, which can be sent to parents via the telephone or Internet, are separated into five categories: attendance, corrective action, grade progress, information and reward for positive reinforcement.
