|Networking system is for emergency contact from school to parents and students.
A telephone tree chart is distributed to each parent. Each parent calls the next parent so that the information reaches all the parents. When the telephone is not answered, the next parent is to be contacted. The last parent in the chart should call the teacher (or sometimes the first parent in the chart) to tell that he/she has been reached.
Recently, e-mail, mostly to cell-phones, is sometimes used to send information to parents all at once.
Either way, since personal information such as telephone numbers and e-mail addresses is involved, careful attention is necessary to prevent use for improper purposes.@
