Secondary students in the Santa Fe district are required to wear badges on campus that track their whereabouts using radio frequency identification technology.
School officials issued the badges this fall to ensure student safety and achieve more accurate attendance reporting.
Attendance rates haven’t been an issue in the district, but a reliable reporting system might allow Santa Fe to recover more state money from average daily attendance funding, district spokeswoman Patti Hanssard said. The monitoring system only tracks students on campus.
