Smart Card Student ID
Students have one - and only one - valid ID at a time. Administrators activate and deactivate IDs for lost or stolen cards on demand. Photo IDs are proven to provide a higher level of student safety and campus security.
Tap in and tap out. From bus to building, building to classroom. Large groups move quickly by an attendance kiosk and are checked in as they tap their card.

Comprehensive School Safety & Operations System (SSOS)
The first step toward a truly automated campus, ScholarChip's ID Manager Station provides all the necessary components to take photos, register students and print unique, virtually tamper-proof cards for your students, facility and staff. ID Manager is the foundation for a comprehensive system with automated attendance, point-of-sale, paperless referrals and visitor management.
Attendance kiosks and mobile or desk mounted card readers process attendance in real time. Checkin and attendance are quickly and efficiently managed with up to 40 student tapping in or out per minute using the two smart readers on the attendance kiosk or tapping in as they pass a doorway or teacher's desk.
Put the responsibility of attendance on the student. Unlike traditional manual systems, all students are listed as absent until the student taps in at a reader or tablet. No teacher intervention is needed and attendance is accurate and consistent. A major plus - teachers recover up to 4 minutes per class for teaching with automated attendance.
Classroom attendance verifies the correct class and period and whether or not the student tapped in on time, late or too tardy to be given credit for attending. For districts with "time in seat" requirements, automated classroom attendance can also track in and out for restroom breaks or other time away from class.
ScholarChip's classroom attendance system automatically reconciles with building attendance. Audio and visual alerts are displayed when a student has a pending infraction or suspension.
Specifically designed for schools, ScholarChip's offers 4 levels of Visitor Management so that every school can utilize Visitor Management with access to ScholarChip's national sex offender database. From the Forever Free (yes, free forever) basic solution to the full suite that provides an extensive SIS interface for automated visitor validation, K-12 schools can implement a visit management solution regardless of their budget limitations.
Beginning with CloudPlus Visit Manager, a new visitor's data can be pulled directly from a drivers license or state-issued ID and cross-referenced with the school's restricted access database and ScholarChip's national sex offender database. A ID card or name badge can be quickly created and issued to the visitor.
Return visitors are recognized in the system and quickly provided with a pass. The attendant and other designated personnel are alerted should someone attempt to enter that is flagged in the system as prohibited, requires escort or other limited access.
Transportation, Hall Monitoring & Paperless Referrals
ScholarChip Mobile Apps for transportation attendance, paperless referrals and hall monitoring. A tap of the student's smart ID card and the ScholarChip cloud is updated with the location, date and time stamp of the tap. The student's photo, schedule and other information is retrieved from the school's student information system (SIS) and appears on the mobile device confirming identity and permissions in seconds. Referrals happen in read time allowing immediate action when needed.
A cloud-based point-of-sale solution for your campus saves time, money and enhances student card usage. Use POS for cafeteria management, free and reduced lunch monitoring and reporting, cafeteria attendance, web-based payments and parent notification. Fully-hosted so no hardware or software maintenance. Uptime and security equal to the requirements set for financial industry and government installations.
Interface with the Student Information System allows proactive response for known food allergies and processes free and reduced lunch plans without calling attention to the student's method of payment.
