|Many schools across the US are securing their kids with school identification cards. From pre-school to high school adminstrators see the need to provide safety and security for their students. There are many reasons why they started using these identification cards.
The number one reason is for safety. We're all aware of stories how someone has went into a school and started shooting. We're all aware of stories of how children were kidnapped from schools. They had to come up with a system that would work to identify students that attended that school. This is where school identification cards came in. This has helped in a couple ways. One, if each student has an identification card then they can prove right away that they belong in that school. A lot of schools have even incorporated someone at the doors to check ID's as they enter.
Also if someone visits a school they have to check in at the desk and receive a temporary identification card. A lot of times they will even take a person's picture. This allows the school to know who is in the school and make sure they are there for a legitimate reason.
ID Cards are custom designed with your school logo and are imprinted on thick PVC material which is “washing machine safe”. Information imprinted can include, name, grade, teacher, birth date, student ID number, and a barcode for library, lunch or after school programs, etc…
As you can see the school IDs are very important to our schools today. They not only go a long way in keeping our children safe they also make it a more efficient way to run the schools.
Have a local AidMe School ID representative come to your school or business and perform a ID Safety Day.
