Massachusettes' fourth largest school district goes with ScholarChip

ScholarChip, the largest provider of smart ID cards for K-12 schools, announces that its newest client, Brockton (Mass.) Public Schools, has purchased ScholarChip’s ID Manager, Building Attendance, Large Group Attendance, and Mobile Hallway Monitoring services. Brockton Public Schools is the fourth-largest school district in Massachusetts, serving 16,595 students in 23 schools.

The program starts with ScholarChip’s ID Manager, which integrates with Brockton’s student information system and prints customized smart ID cards. Cards will be issued to students and staff, who will tap in at a kiosk located at four separate high school entrances. These kiosks will be used for building attendance as well as large group attendance activities like dances or sports events. Hallway monitoring allows staff to keep track of students using a mobile device like an iPad to identify students, access schedules, and generate discipline notices.

Smart ID card-based automation allows administrators to keep schools more secure; they can monitor school attendance in real time, which can be vital in the case of emergency. Reports generated also support data-driven operation decisions, which increase efficiency and security.
