Set up is simple and easy to use and school administrators have real-time reports of everyone who is on campus.

“This is something that every school should have,” states Barry Peterson, President & CEO of School Check IN. “BioCHECK raises security to a new level, and because it provides instant reports on everyone who’s on campus, there’s never a gap that could compromise student and faculty safety at any time.” He adds, “When BioCHECK is incorporated into a school’s daily routine, a school is a self-contained unit that is safe and secure.

There’s no guessing, and the teachers can do what they are hired to do–teach.
