Oklahoma School District Implements New Student ID Policy

Moore Public Schools in Oklahoma have implemented changes designed to improve campus safety and security, including a new policy that requires students to wear their identification badges when they are on campus.

According to Fox 25, the policy differs for middle schools and high schools.

Middle school students must wear and display their ID badges before entering the school building. If they don’t, they’ll be removed from class, and the school will contact their parents. The students will then be issued temporary IDs and be allowed to return to class. Only three temporary badges will be issued to a junior high student. The fourth time, the student will be suspended.

For students in high school, no temporary badges will be available. If they come to school without their ID, they’ll be suspended for the rest of the day. The second time they’ll be suspended for two days.

For both middle school and high school students, for a third infraction, a pre-disciplinary conference will determine how long they should receive an out-of-school suspension.

District official say students that don’t wear their ID badges pose safety issues.

In addition to requiring that students wear and display their IDs, Moore Public Schools has also created a community, awareness, responsiveness and engagement (CARE) program, reports News on 6. Inspired by Sandy Hook Promise’s “Know the Signs” program, CARE encourages students to empathize and create an inclusive culture.
