Weehawken Township, NJ School District Joins ScholarChip’s Growing Client Roster
NEW YORK, N.Y.., February 7, 2017 —ScholarChip®, the largest provider of smart ID cards for K-12 schools, announces its newest client, Weehawken Township School District in New Jersey, which has purchased Building Attendance for its high school and Visitor Management and Secure Door Access services for all schools.
The Weehawken Township School District is a progressive, student-centered community of learners in pursuit of collective and individual excellence. To this end, they implement systems and structures that ensure all students will achieve at their maximum academic potential, develop values that embrace civic responsibility, and hone skills to adapt to a dynamic global society.
This new program starts with ScholarChip’s ID Manager, which integrates with Weehawken’s student information system and prints customized smart ID cards. Cards are issued to high school students and staff, who will tap in at a kiosk located at each entrance. These kiosks are used for building attendance as well as large group attendance activities like dances or sports events.
The ID Manager system is installed in each school; teachers and staff are assigned ScholarChip smart ID cards that allow them to access the school through secure doors. And when visitors and volunteers come to the schools, their drivers’ licenses are scanned, the national database for sex offenders is searched, and if the person is approved, they are issued a nametag for entry to the school.
Smart ID card-based automation like that embraced by the Weehawken Township School District allows administrators to keep schools more secure; they can monitor school attendance in real time, which can be vital in the case of emergency. These real-time reports support data-driven operation decisions, which increase efficiency and security.
ScholarChip is the largest provider of smart ID cards used for attendance, payment processing, visitor management, secure door access, and behavior management services in K12. It was first to market in centralizing and integrating School Safety and Operations System with a true one card solution, which operates seamlessly with popular Student Information Systems and NFC mobile devices. ScholarChip's Higher Education services include Tuition Payment Plans, Loan Servicing, Student Retention Services, and a compliant Payment Gateway.
