School District Discusses ID Card Policy
Farmingdale School District officials are planning new policies for student identification cards. Currently, all employees and visitors who enter Farmingdale's Schools are required to wear identification. Employees wear a card bearing a photo of the employee as well as their name, and visitors are marked with a "visitor" card. Students are provided with identification cards at the beginning of the school year, but they are carried, not worn. Employees and visitors have been required to wear the card since last year as a safety measure, allowing the district to identify people in the school's buildings as authorized individuals. Students currently only use the card for lunch privileges or if they have to show identification for other purposes. The district is planning and developing new policies for these cards, which, in the future, all students in the district may wear.
