Check-in System Goes Digital at Schools

Posted by on Feb 18, 2016 in News | 0 comments

Visitor check-in at Kalispell’s five public elementary schools has gone digital, upping the level of security. Gone are paper sign-in sheets. Visitors and volunteers now check in at new digital stations that feature touch-screen monitors, card scanners and label printers. The stations were installed over winter break and started being used in January at a cost of approximately $4,800 from technology funds. Cameras also were installed at each elementary, which administrators can access by cellphone. To check into the new system, a visitor scans his or her license. Information collected from the license includes first and last name, birthdate and state of residence. If a visitor does not have a license, he or she will be prompted to type in the information. A photo of the visitor will be then be taken. An adhesive visitor or volunteer badge will print featuring the person’s photo, full name and date and time of checking in. A code also appears in the left corner above the date. When it comes to checking out, the visitor types in the code to complete the process. View full article...

Ident-A-Kid Partners with Edclick to Improve School Efficiency

St. Petersburg, FL. — Ident-A-kid Services of America, the nation’s leader in child safety solutions, has partnered with Edclick, a K12 software solution company, to provide PowerSchool users another level of integration for student data. Ident-A-Kid and EdClick are now able to provide total accountability on Student attendance. With the integration of CCSS and EdClick’s Student Discipline Manager, schools will be able to seamlessly track all tardies and early releases for accurate and instant records. Discipline Manager, Edclick’s top selling software program, is a comprehensive, web-based discipline management system designed to streamline the discipline process. Discipline Manager allows schools to closely and efficiently track tardies, referrals, state reporting, and much more. By monitoring these areas schools see improved behavior, attendance and therefore receive more funding. Harry Tennant, Edclick’s CEO says “Our goal is to continue making software for educators by educators.” Ident-A-Kid’s Complete Campus Security Solution (CCSS) visitor management system tracks all visitors on campus assuring schools that all visitors have a positive ID. In addition, CCSS has the ability to quickly process and issue passes to tardy students. Rick Hagan, Ident-A-Kid CEO said “K12 System integration is important for saving schools precious dollars and is the key to the future and this partnership demonstrates that.” The sharing of safety and attendance data creates accurate discipline and enhanced security for all students. Schools will no longer have to manually pull reports from CCSS and enter them into Discipline manager. Both companies look forward to the added efficiency this partnership will provide to schools across the nation. About Edclick, formerly Harry Tennant & Associates, Inc., was formed in 1993.
