Anaheim Union High School District To Use GPS Tracking

first_imgDitching school used to be a lot easier. A California based school district wants to stop all hooky playing. Anaheim Union High School District will being giving students who have missed four unexcused days in a school year a GPS tracking device.The GPS device will be a size of a cellphone and force kids to “check in” a couple of times of a day. That way the school district will know where the students are at any given time. The real kicker here is that both the student and parents have to agree to use the device. No word about what will happen if neither party agrees to use it.I have heard about these ideas before, but this one is less invasive idea than other proposals. My only issue here is that the kid could leave it at one location, and thus make the device pointless. Either way, the school district could lose on this.
