Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

Some California schools requiring students to wear IDs

Monday, August 6, 2012

Two high schools in Stanislaus County in California join several others in requiring students to wear their student ID cards while on campus. The new policy at Davis and Johansen high schools means students must wear lanyards that display those IDs.

Some students aren’t too happy with the change, but a principal at one of the schools that’s already requiring students to wear IDs said the visible IDs create a safer environment.”Anyone who walks onto the campus and does not have a lanyard gets campus supervisors’ immediate attention,” he said.


A senior at Johansen, said, “everyone is in an uproar. The students are all upset about the idea of wearing the ID on a lanyard.…We don’t really understand the purpose of the lanyards.”

The IDs are needed, said an associate principal at one of the schools, because at least weekly, non-students who might pass for teens turn up on campus without lanyards visible.

At some of the schools, students caught without an ID will get a loaner for the day, but repeat offenders risk a $3 replacement fee.
