PlascoTrac selected as a 2012-2013 Readers’ Choice Awards winner by customers.
Here at PlascoTrac, we say that if there is one word that defines our system, it’s results. No one knows that better than our amazing customers, and they are spreading the word. With their help, PlascoTrac was just selected as a Readers’ Choice Award winner! This eSchool News award recognizes educational technology products and services that have had the greatest impact in their readers’ schools.
In the spring, the good folks over at eSchool News asked their readers to share their top picks for school hardware, software, websites, and services. After nearly 1,300 responses and nominations, eSchool News chose the 50 best responses and grouped them into either the K-12 or higher education category.
Readers were asked to explain how they are using the product to improve teaching, learning, or school administration, and to what effect. This is what was written about PlascoTrac:
PlascoTrac by Plasco ID
With PlascoTrac, a student incident and ID tracking system, schools have an efficient way to track not only tardiness, but also violations like cell phone, dress code, and parking lot incidents. The software also can be used to manage activities such as assembly or field trip attendance, extracurricular activities, tutoring, or various classroom activities that take students off campus.
“This is the fourth year we have been using PlascoTrac for tracking tardies. The program is awesome,” said Sharon Logan, a librarian for Brenham Independent School District in Texas. “Not only has it cut down the amount of tardies, but we are able to hold students accountable. Detentions must be served, and privileges are deprived when students receive more than six tardies in a semester. Our students are required to wear IDs. This past school year, we initiated the temporary system as well. Now, a student receives a temporary ID if the ID is not worn or left at home. Again, it goes back to accountability—plus it gives the administration the opportunity to view tardies and temporaries at the end of each day. A great administration tool!”
PlascoTrac would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to our customers for submitting your nominations and to eSchool News for this amazing honor!
