RFID-based Access Control and Tracking Systems can help Protect Students

RFID-based Access Control and Tracking Systems can help keep tabs on students’ whereabouts at all times, ensuring a superior level of security within educational environments.

One example of a successful RFID implementation comes from a Peru, IN, school, that has taken the necessary steps to implement such a program by issuing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) cards to its students.

According to school officials, they were receiving at least one call a week from a concerned parent communicating that their child had not gotten off at their bus stop. But according to Peru Community Schools Transportation Director Dave Frushour: “This will save everyone time and give parents peace of mind to know that we know where their child is.”

The student swipes a card when they get on or off the bus. This, in turn, allows the school district to track the student’s whereabouts, as far as what bus they are on. The ID card also has the bus number and stop stamped on it to help make sure they board the correct bus and exit at the correct stop.

Furthermore, the card reader gives school officials access to information such as who rides regularly and how many empty seats are on any particular bus. Frushour stresses that no personal information is stored on the cards or readers.
