During an Action Alert or drill, unaccounted students can report their status.
Student self-reporting is an add-on feature for CatapultEMS. Contact your Customer Success Manager to enable this feature.
Student self-reporting requires student alert notifications.
(With student self-reporting) When initiating an Action Alert, CatapultEMS notifies students.
Note: When initiating a Drill, you have the option to include or exclude Students from receiving the notification.
Once you initiate the Action Alert, students receive the notification (below).
Send student self-reporting links
Safety Teams and staff follow the normal Action Alert protocol: report their status, location, and account for any students with them.
After a set amount of time, CatapultEMS sends any unaccounted students links to report for themselves.
If needed, you can send the self-reporting links early by clicking Send Student Self-Reporting Link Early.
Once the self-reporting links have been sent, you cannot resend for 5 minutes. This avoids duplicate notifications.
CatapultEMS sends unaccounted students a notification (below) asking them to report their status.
- Choose Report Status.
- Choose Absent or Attending School.
Note: No login is required.
- If Absent, proceed to Step 5.
- If Attending School, proceed to Step 3.
- Report your status and any relevant details.
- Choose Next.
- CatapultEMS thanks them for self-reporting.
On the Student Accountability page, the student appears under the relevant tab (Unaccounted, Accounted, or Absent). The "Accounted by" column lists "Self accounted" rather than the teacher name, if the student accounted for themself.
Choose View to see the student-provided details, as well as their emergency contact information.
