GAO RFID System Solutions: Secondary Schools
From the moment staff members and students enter the school to the time they leave; they are subjected to a variety of challenges every day. The GAO RFID Education Services System ensures that a wide range of challenges unique to secondary schools is effectively managed to deliver optimal operations results for educators and a pleasant learning environment for students.
Tracking and Managing Inventory
Secondary schools have numerous amounts of equipment and supplies that require location tracking and knowledge of the amount. This equipment can include valuables like iPads, iMacs, sets created for school plays, band instruments, lab equipment and gym equipment that all require inventory checks on a weekly, monthly or annual basis. To have the amount and the location of the equipment is vital to the student’s learning in school. Tracking or tagging the valuable equipment in your organization using our Asset Tracking System
allows you to quickly track items if they are lost or stolen.
The RFID solutions can provide you with methods to track, monitor, and protect all the equipment in your organization with a high degree of automation.
Controlling Access and Security Systems
GAO RFID strongly believes that the security of your organization begins with the safety of staff and students, and we accomplish this via our RFID Access Control System
. With multiple classrooms, gyms, parking areas and doors, the management of employees, students and visitors to these areas are required to reduce risk of potential harm to anyone. With only authorized personnel and visitors given RFID Badges
, access to each room of the school can potentially be controlled. In the event of a lockdown, our RFID System helps to keep security in the control of administration to keep students and faculty safe.
RFID badges enable a fully automated way of granting and restricting access to specific zones on school property as well as school equipment, making any school environment both safe and secure.
Tracking Students, Teachers, Visitors and Unknown Personnel
Identifying and locating both students and staff in your organization is a necessary part of maintaining the safety and security of the organization. Our RFID Personnel Tracking System
enables administrative staff to track teachers and students throughout the building. A set of specialized tags with integrated alarms can ensure the safety of teachers, staff and students in case of danger from unknown personnel.
Data and Time Management
Students between Grade 9 and 12 require undivided attention in classes and a learning environment that disallows distractions. To make sure that this is the case, teachers and staff have to bring their A-game to every teaching opportunity. In order to do that, the lesser the manual administrative tasks that need doing, the better for both administrative staff and teachers to devote their time to creating the best possible learning environment. Monitoring absences, on-call substitute teachers, payroll data management as well as other administrative tasks can be automated using our RFID solutions to give teachers and staff an optimal workplace environment.
Assigning RFID badges to teachers and administrative staff enables the progression of students and efficiency of staff to be monitored as they go through their daily activities. These badges also can be embedded with employee information so that time and attendance is automatically logged and integrated with an existing payroll system.
Managing Equipment Efficiently
Any school has a vast array of equipment. In specific, a secondary school has numerous lab equipment for classes such as biology, chemistry, wood shop and physics. With the introduction of new electronic devices that are an integral part of the student’s learning therein lies an added accountability issue. Any equipment, if stolen or mishandled, need to have a way to be tracked for efficiency and monitored to prevent loss and damage. Because every classroom will have its own unique equipment such as gym equipment and laboratory equipment, they have different ways of management unique to their own specific needs.
With GAO RFID solutions, the tracking and maintenance of monitoring the equipment can be automated, thereby keeping the equipment secure so that they are available when students attend class.
Integrating GAO RFID Solutions with your Educational System
The function of a RFID or radio frequency identification system is to collect in real time the identification of objects and all associated data.
The challenge arises when it’s time to put that collected information to work: integrating RFID-generated data into educational applications so that essential information can be viewed, analyzed, applied and presented to end users.
Competency assessment software, payroll systems, and decision support management tools are used to help make other educational and instructional processes more efficient. It is essential that an RFID solution is compatible with such systems.
GAO’s AUTO-ID Engine
, incorporates middleware and essential RFID functions, plus GAO’s RFID hardware and system integration expertise make it easy to integrate with all educational systems that are currently used. Through our middleware and a proper API, the data collected by our RFID systems are seamlessly passed on to your organization’s system of integrated applications.
The results are demonstrated in a way that will empower you to make your organization a better fit for all secondary school students.
We here, at GAO RFID, want to help you get all the information you need to see how GAO RFID systems can be integrated with your existing system. Please do not hesitate to contact us
