Do you know if your kids are safe at school? Schools today are taking security more seriously than ever, and student ID card programs have become a growing trend to keep schools and their students safe. A student ID card program outfits each student with an ID card or badge that must be worn every day at school.
Student ID cards are a simple and effective security solution because they provide instant visual identification of each student and a quick way to determine if a student belongs in the building. Student ID cards are especially helpful at the beginning of the school year when the student’s picture and name are visible to help teachers and staff learn names quickly.
Using student ID cards can be simple, and its benefits will make everyone in the school district happy. To start a program that meets your school’s needs, follow these guidelines:
1. Find the ID card system that’s right for you.
Identification systems allow you to take control of identification by designing and printing your own ID cards onsite. To find the system that’s right for you, use a user-friendly system selection guide like the IDville System Information Guide.
2. Make user-friendly software a priority.
Equally important to the system you select is the software you use to create the student ID cards. The individual who uses the identification software in a school is often an administrative assistant or staff member. View a demo or tutorial of the software before buying to make sure it will be easy for this person to use.
3. Have fun with identification
! Student ID cards are an important part to a security program, but they can also be fun for students. Promote school spirit by customizing your identification cards with the school mascot and outfitting students with custom lanyards
. Make students excited about their ID cards, and your program is bound to be a success.
