Plasco ID announced that it has agreed to a district-wide contract with the Houston Independent School District for the PlascoTrac Student Tracking System. By the end of 2009, the district expects 50 schools to be fully operational with the PlascoTrac System. Plans to implement the system at the remaining approximately 250 HISD schools are also under consideration.
PlascoTrac is an automated student tracking system used to track discipline issues such as tardiness, dress code violations and cell phone use. With a quick scan of a student’s ID card, PlascoTrac logs an incident, prints a pass, and the student is off to class within seconds.
Prior to PlascoTrac, many of the schools used handwritten passes and log books to keep track of discipline compliance. The district will also be using the PlascoTrac Mobile units for remote tracking of event attendance at school dances, after-school programs and sporting events.
The PlascoTrac System will be integrated with the district’s Chancery SMS Student Information System. The combination of the two systems will provide complete behavior data for each individual student as well as a district-wide glimpse of overall behavior patterns.
