Keeping any school safe should be the priority of any student, parent, teacher and administrator. An important tool and resource for any school or district in keeping their school safe is SSICA. When a user scans an ID card with SSICA, it will notify the user if this individual is allowed to enter the school or not. It can also warn administrators if someone has tried to come onto campus.
When a user scans the ID card of the student, the user can see the parent(s) name and phone number, picture of the student, and information pertinent to the student. SSICA can also notify parents/guardians when the student has entered the school by text message (not push notification) and by email. The text can go out in multiple languages. Other useful information can be provided is if the student is suspended, expelled.
How about if the student doesn’t have an ID card? Staff can still use SSICA to do a Look Up or to search for the student by first name, last name or ID number.
With SSICA, the school district can use SSICA to scan adult ID cards to see if they are authorized to take a student out of school. The school can set up stations with a SSICA Omni Directional scanner where the adult can scan their ID card (e.g. license, passport or other ID card authorized by the district) and the school can see if this individual is able to take the student out of school.
