The Cleveland Metropolitan School District is using IDentiphoto to implement its Priority Recognition Increased Data & Efficiency (PRIDE) initiative and increase safety and security while streamlining processes.
Using mobile and ID technology, the district’s PRIDE program offers three components: student identification badges, visitor management, and a student information/discipline management system.
Faculty and staff will be able to identify students and visitors and to monitor access to their buildings. In addition, the ID badge also incorporates a unique bar code that is utilized for cataloging various activities and transactions such as cafeteria checkout, media center, hallways and processing tardy students.
Visitors will be required to present a valid driver’s license or state ID that can be scanned and flagged if deemed high risk. After the check-in process, the visitor will be provided with a photo ID badge that must be worn while on campus.
In addition, administrators have the ability to obtain individual student information from anywhere on campus via a handheld mobile unit. These handheld units have the ability to access student information immediately by swiping their ID.
