The Cape Henlopen School District hopes to boost security this year by fine tuning efforts to require district personnel to wear identification badges.

The district has had badges before, but there will be more of an effort to require all district personnel to wear the badges during all school related activities.

“That will be the expectation,” said District Superintendent Dr. David Robinson.

The issue was discussed briefly during an August 26 school board meeting and is considered a way of emphasising that the district considers security a top priority, he said.

“Everyone in our schools can be identified. If there was anything that happened, we would know who the employees are . . . It’s just a good practice of security.”

“It’s a way of fine tuning and bringing attention to the fact that security is important. . . Security in schools is more paramount than it has ever been. That is the world we have come to live in.”
