With 30 buildings and 15,000 students to supervise, the Dayton Public School System in Ohio works hard to ensure students are safe while attending classes. A school ID system using the Fargo DTC4500 ID card printer now attempts to solve both problems by tracking student attendance.
The Dayton school system’s new ID cards have streamlined the system for checking in tardy students by automatically printing a hall pass when the student’s ID card is scanned by the office, instead of requiring office aids to handwrite the passes. The new system also allows the schools to keep a much more accurate record of which students are currently in the building for emergency situations.
Accessing the multifunctional power of ID cards, the student IDs are also being used as library cards and lunch payment cards.
