Klein ISD will begin using the SMART tag ID card system to increase student safety, streamline management of students riding on school buses, and allow access to campus services via easy scans.
The SMART tag system, which consists of student ID cards with barcodes and smart readers to read the cards, will allow students to
- check out library books via a quick scan,
- easily pay for lunch and breakfast with a swipe, and
- allow families to receive bus stop notifications when their child gets on and off the bus.
Bus stop notifications will be implemented during the fall semester in a phased-in rollout. Families will be notified in advance prior to these notifications.
By implementing this new ID card system, school staff will be able to quickly and efficiently identify anyone who should not be on campus, greatly increasing school safety.
