Muscatine High School, Iowa has implemented a campus card program that requires its approximately 1,650 students to wear photo identification as a safety measure, according to the Muscatine Journal. School officials added that the badges will also bring other benefits.
The mag stripe on the card will also enable students to check out library materials and buy lunches in the school cafeterias, as opposed to inputting information manually, which takes more time.
To help staff identify students better, the badges will be color coded with freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors wearing different colors.
This will also help staff verify if a student should be going off-campus, for lunch or go to classes at the local community college.
