BIOSCAN SYSTEM: MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q.) Is this a fingerprint and where is it stored?
A.) No this is not a fingerprint in the traditional sense. The Bioscan identifies your child by the ridges in their finger and assigns a number to your child. Those numbers are stored in the Bioscan system for our school identification purposes only--not in any outside database.
Q.) How are the Bioscan scanners cleaned?
A.) We currently use a keypad where students punch in lunch numbers, and those keypads are sanitized every 30 minutes between lunch periods. This was approved by the Health Department as a best practice. The finger scanners will be sanitized the same way, between every lunch period.
