Problem
After a pilot program at other BVSD high schools, Centaurus has introduced a new ID badge policy: students must wear their ID cards at all times and must use them to unlock the doors when entering the building. This was done to increase security, but the drawbacks are significant. Many students are stopped on their way into the building every day because they lost their ID card and they must wait for the office staff to decide to let them in, which can take several minutes.

Solution
I believe if students weren't required to display their ID cards at all times, fewer students would lose them. Many have already resorted to keeping them in their wallet, backpack, or pocket despite the rules, but they still must be able to present it at a moment's notice. If students were not required to display their ID cards, they would be able to find a more permanent place to store them, only removing them when necessary to unlock the doors - at most once or twice per day.

Personal story
I am a senior at Centaurus High School. On November 27, 2018, I attempted to reenter the building after leaving briefly to get lunch from a nearby restaurant. I didn't have my badge with me, and I stood outside of the building for five minutes waiting for the office staff to unlock the door. I could see through the window that neither person in the front office was busy, but instead of opening the door, they came outside to chastise me for not having my ID card. A few minutes later, as I was eating my lunch, I heard a nearby hall monitor get a tip through his walkie-talkie and our two hall monitors circled my lunch table for the next ten minutes while I ate. This is despite me speaking to both people in the front office several times this school year.
