Staff and student ID cards are currently used for so much more than visual identification.
Chanhassen, MN (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
As K-12 schools across the country are preparing for the 2012-2013 school year, ID Wholesaler, the largest photo identification products retailer, is reminding schools to stock up on supplies for their photo identification programs. One of the keys to creating a safe school is controlling who's in it. Many schools are using plastic ID badges to do just that.
“Student IDs are an important tool for school security programs,” notes Jennifer Clancy, marketing manager at ID Wholesaler. “With this, it’s important that schools have the supplies they’ll need to ensure their students, staff and faculty have current ID cards and are able to display them easily.”
Throughout the summer, ID Wholesaler has been helping schools prepare for the next school year and ensure they have everything they need to secure their facility and support their ID badge programs, including card printer supplies, as well as badge accessories such as lanyards, badge reels, and badge holders.
Plus, notes Clancy, “Staff and student ID cards are currently used for so much more than visual identification.” For example, many schools use barcodes or magnetic stripes on student ID cards so that the cards can be used for lunch account tracking or library check-out. Some schools even print information on the back side of cards, such as class schedules, emergency contact information, medications or allergies. Some schools are also using their cards in conjunction with an access control system to control who enters their facility and for ease in tracking student attendance.”
