High school to implement swipe-card attendance system

Monday, October 1, 2012

Students at Ocean City High School in New Jersey will be swiping their student ID card next year as they enter school., which will create an electronic attendance record that will follow them throughout the school day.

In each period, teachers will be able to check actual attendance against the record of which students should be in class.


Students will swipe cards at two stations at the school’s entrance and a teacher monitoring the system will be able to view a photograph produced by the student ID to make sure that it matches the student swiping the card.

Students who forget their IDs will be able to visit two stations in the attendance office to receive temporary IDs or even time-stamped late passes.

Swipe K12 School Solutions will be installing the new technology.
