James Logan High School Improves Security with ID badge Program
Starting today, students and teachers at Union City, California's James Logan High School will be required to wear ID badges at all times on school grounds. The new ID card program goes into effect after a year-long security review was conducted at the school.
The aim of the card program is to keep better track of who is on campus. Students, teachers and staff must show their badges visibly when they enter the school. And if they leave the school grounds at any point during the day, they must first check in with the front office.
School officials hope that the badges quickly become part of the daily routine for all involved. Their hope is that any conceived inconveniences will be outweighed by the added sense of security inside and around the high school.
The new security measure will be in place through the end of the school year, at which point the school district will review the program to determine what, if any, adjustments should be made for the coming fall.
