The system of notifying parents of a child's absence is being looked at following the abduction of a 10-year-old girl.
Most schools send out an automated phone message, but the question is, "how quickly is that call made?"
Fresno Unified School Superintendent Michal Hanson says the automated system in Fresno Unified calls parents between 6 and 9 p.m. the night of the absence.
CBS47 checked the policy of other districts to compare and Clovis Unified sends the message 5 to 7 hours after the absence and Central Unified makes the call within 2 hours.
Hanson says he would like his district to be that quick, but says his district is at the mercy of technology, which is just catching up with schools across the state.
