Calif. District Monitors Problem Students With GPS Devices

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Anaheim Union High School District has implemented a GPS program in which problem students are issued a GPS device and required to check in through out the day. Currently, 75 students from the seventh and eighth grade are enrolled in the program.

Students who are issued a GPS device must check in five times per day: when they leave their house in the morning, when they arrive at school, at lunch, when they leave school, and at 8 p.m. each day, Geek with Laptop reports.
