ABSTRACT
The article reports that Hammonton School District in New Jersey adopts fingerprint scanning system to identify students and manage meal plans. When Jane G. Cora, foodservice director at Hammonton Public Schools, was putting in new POS systems in 2006, she decided to also upgrade the cafeterias' identification systems. The system that she uses, provided by Identimetrics, captures scans of two fingers on each student, then encodes them so they cannot be linked to the actual fingerprints.
