Our local school system has implemented a new safety measure. All school employees have been given fobs and must now “fob in” when they arrive at school and “fob out” when they leave. The accompanying explanation? In the case of an emergency a record will be available of who is in each building and who is not. (There are over 100 schools in our local district, many with multiple buildings.)
Change is often met with skepticism and this new procedure has raised the eyebrows and hackles of a few of my teaching peeps. I’m all for additional safety at schools, yet this one does puzzle me a bit. I’m catching a whiff of what smells like a way to monitor the comings and going of school employees. However maybe here in our local school district we are a bit behind the times and this sort of procedure is already in place around the country.
Are you asked to fob in and fob out for safety at your school? Or do you have a similar safety procedure in place?
Curious as always!
