Yet another school has jumped on the RFIDtracking of their students. This time the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas plans to track their students via RFID chips placed in their studentIDs. It will begin trials at two schools and, if administrators like it, all 100,000 students will be required to use it.
District officials said the Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) tags would improve safety by allowing them to locate students — and count them more accurately at the beginning of the school day to help offset cuts in state funding, which is partly based on attendance.
