Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

Arizona students to begin wearing ID card

Friday, July 27, 2012

Scottsdale School District students will be required to wear ID cards when they return to school next month. The new procedure covers middle and high school students.

High school students will be issued a photo student ID and lanyard during registration week and middle school students will get theirs a few weeks after school starts. While the ID and lanyard are free, if the card is lost or stolen, students are likely to be charged a replacement fee.


Students will have to scan their ID cards to ride the school bus, purchase food in the cafeteria, purchase items in the bookstore and check out library books.

“Being able to visually identify our students will help distinguish them from others who may not belong on our campuses,” said a district security officer.
