In the 2018-2019 school year, identification badges for everyone on campus has caused a commotion across CCISD.

Opinions vary from students to teachers while people are adjusting to the new policy.

“I think they are good for easily identifying people from a distance in the school” said Ethan Morrow.

Mr. Drake said that wearing badges helps prepare students for future careers, as this is a requirement for most jobs.

Mr. Drake also mentioned potential plans to use them for more than identification.

Instead of typing in your lunch pin, he mentioned being able to possibly swipe your badge or scan it in order to go through the lunch line, and also to check out library books and textbooks. In addition, Mr. Drake didn’t have any viable alternatives for identifying students other than uniforms, which he opposes.

Overall, the school is doing a good job with IDs. However, consequences have been established for those who don’t follow the new rule.

Those who constantly forget their ID can get a temporary stick-on badge in the office, but it comes with a price of $1. If forgetting your badge is a constant issue, purchasing a new $5 badge might be a better option.
