From Texas, while I don't agree with this. .. it only makes sense. A lot of schools in different countries to this.

It's only a little different than a major corporation with HID Proximity cards. They want to know who is in the school and they stepped it up a notch so they can now track the students. I'm all for it.

It's used to gain entry... not to track your movements.

Problem: Students are not in their home rooms for attendance

Solution:?

I'm curious how RF cards will solve this problem?

Troof.

Wonder how the school's budget is? They're worried about revenue, but this doesn't sound like the smartest expense.

Wonder which school staffer is bangin' the sales guy from the RFID vendor.

If I'm not mistaken - these cards a different. It has the ability of tracking your movement so it will know exactly where the student is on campus.

There was an episode of Numb3rs involving this.

They don't track movement, but again... if the goal is to have students IN the classroom in time for attendance... how will knowing where they are resolve that? They are either in class or not in class which a teacher can visually determine

Ah you are correct. I misread the article.

I see it like this :

If I were a good parent, dropped off my kid at school, saw him/her walk into the building but yet the skip class.. the school will at least know the student made it to the school.

Also, if the doors are locked, denying access to any one without a RFID badge, (making anyone without one, even students that lost theirs, to go to the front office to check in.) it could prevent unwanted individuals from entering the school - which should be the case. A student should feel safe at school. I think it is up to the school districts to make this happen.

This has nothing to do with student safety... this program is meant to ensure the schools get paid their state $$$$

Have a security guard/staff lock all doors onto campus a few minutes after the start of class(one way locked doors like what most schools already have), take roll during first class(like what most schools already do). That's how my high school was.

Either this is already done or the only reason it isn't done is because staff or security is too lazy.

I would imagine some tech company allowed this one school to use these chips for free, hoping that eventually other schools will adopt this policy and this certain tech company will make a ton of money off of this system.

Maybe the government is testing the waters to see what the public will allow them to get away with. Has anybody researched pages 1000-1004 of obama's health care plan...it talks about newborns having what they call "medical" chips implanted into them.
