Pennsylvania High School To Issue Access Cards

YORK, Pa- Students at William Penn Senior High in York will soon be required to wear identification badges.

The purpose of the badges will be to help teachers decide who is actually a student and who is attending without permission.

According to the York Dispatch, technology inside the card will trigger an alarm if students try to sneak in other students. It will also discourage cardholders from being tardy because the system will catalogue the times they enter.

According to school officials, the extra security will help prevent violent confrontations that arise from outside sources. The system is currently in review while school board members decide on which model to purchase.
