Schools in Cincinnati’s largest public school district are trying out a new card technology to help parents and schools keep track of children. When students get on or off the school bus they swipe an ID card with an RFID chip, and a computer program instantly texts the child’s parents. This new ZPass program can also be used to track and report on bus rider numbers, traffic problems, and missing children.
Other schools around the country are also implementing new ID card programs with RFID chips for everything from checking out library books and buying lunch to tracking attendance and student locations within school buildings.
While many schools are not using ID card programs like these, a basic student and staff ID card program can still add security to your district. Shop DisountID.com ID systems now!
