“Can I see some ID, please?”

As a result of the School Safety and Security Review report released in June 2017, a number of safety improvements were recommended as safety enhancement initiatives for the district. One of these safety initiatives involves all district employees having new photo ID badges.

All new photo ID badges will contain the following:

  • An up-to-date and clear employee photo;
  • The employee’s first and last name;
  • Department classification title;
  • (For example: an Education Assistant’s department classification would be Learning Support Services. A teacher’s department classification title would be Education)
  • Primary Department / School location; and
  • Vertical design and layout.

The Human Resources department will be coordinating this safety initiative, which will begin in May. Once employees receive their new photo ID badges, they should destroy (shred or cut up) their previous photo ID badge. Photo ID badges are expected to be worn at all times during work hours.

If you have any questions regarding this initiative, please feel free to contact me.
