3 Questions to Ask About Your New School ID Badge Program

Posted by Dan Ryan on Jun 7, 2017 2:00:00 PM

For many educational institutions, the end of the school year is a time to reflect on the year gone by, wrap up any loose ends and make plans for the "off" months ahead.

However, the end of the school year is also budgeting season, making it the perfect time for schools to plan for upcoming expenses, both large and small.

This makes school budgeting season the perfect time to think about investing in a school ID card program, whether it's an overhaul of your existing solution or implementing student or employee ID badges for the first time.

While an investment in an ID program isn't going to completely blow the budget like a new gym floor or repairs to the HVAC system might, creating a new identification badge program will require careful planning and investment.

In order to get the most efficient and effective badging system possible, it's understand what options you have moving forward and how those options mesh with your school's needs.

Posted by Dan Ryan on May 26, 2017 11:00:00 AM

Student ID badges are a pretty common sight at schools across the country, whether they're high schools, middle schools or sprawling universities.

A student ID badge's main goal is to confirm that the student possessing it is, in fact, an authorized student.

The key elements of a good student ID badge include a clear photo of the student, the student's name printed in large text and maybe some school-themed branding, like school colors or a logo.

However, many of today's schools use student ID badges for far more than positive identification.

Today's schools, particularly colleges, need a student ID badge that can grant access to the gym, pay for meals at the cafeteria and get a student on the campus shuttle bus.

Even today's high schools are getting into using "smart" student ID badges, requiring students to use a card to pay for lunch instead of using cash.

With school budgeting season in full swing, you may be looking to update or overhaul your existing student ID badge program.

If so, now is a great time to make the switch from a card-based credential system to a far more modern solution: wristbands!
