Students can’t lose their IDs when more schools implement new biotechnology like iris scanning. Companies like BlinkSpot offer technology that scans student irises as children board or exit the bus, for example, and this data is sent in real time to the school, along with an individual email to each parent verifying the time and location of their child. Other companies looking into the school market include EyeLock, which is piloting their iris scanning devices in elementary school districts around the country.
