Student ID Badge Policy (7th - 12th Grades)
Student ID Cards & Lanyards
In an effort to promote College and Career Readiness, students in seventh grade through 12th grade will have the ability to possess their ID cards in a number of ways-- on a lanyard, in their wallets, or in their pockets—while on campus in order to more closely mirror college, career and real-life expectations and procedures.
- Students shall have their ID on them at all times. If students opt to wear a lanyard, it must be a TUSD one.
- Students will need their ID to check books, verify identification if they commit an infraction or there is a reasonable suspicion they committed a behavioral infraction, they are referred to the Dean, etc.
- If students repeatedly do not have their ID when it’s needed (no exact number but a pattern is recognized), they should be referred to the Dean.
- The emphasis is on teaching students responsible behavior and holding them accountable to carrying an ID, not tracking their lack of an ID and tracking repeat consequences.
