Smart High Schools

Students that attend Bellevue High School in Bellevue, Ohio, now have an ID card that can be used throughout the school. NewMarket Solutions, Inc. announced they have completed the installation of the first smart card system for a U.S. high school. All 850 students have been issued Digital Photo-ID smart cards that can now be used from everything from purchasing lunch, using a photocopier to opening school doors. The development of technology, which can be integrated into a card, is somewhat responsible for the enormous increase in the use of functional applications. Bar codes, magnetic stripes, and smart chips with processing capability can store the necessary information and access rights a school district requires for each student.
