School ID Security Checklist

School ID card systems are becoming more advanced, utilizing the same technology used by corporations to produce high-quality, secure ID cards. Cards can range from student, teacher, and staff photo ID cards to coach ID cards, volunteer and visitor IDs, and more.

In colleges and universities especially, modern student IDs are now used to increase security and streamlining processes like controlling access to classrooms, dorms, and laboratories. ID cards equipped with smart features are also used to track student attendance and facilitate library checkouts and cafeteria payments.

Here's a handy checklist that you can refer to in planning your school's identification card system:
