Badge Holders and Lanyards for Teachers

With school starting in just a few weeks, it’s time to start preparing for it.

These days, it’s often difficult to distinguish the student from the teacher! That’s why it’s important to arm your faculty with proper badge holders that will identify your teachers as qualified educators in your facility. This is especially important when you’re the administrator to a public educational institution where anyone can come in off the streets during a time when tragic incidents have been occurring in schools all over the nation.

The school systems have been supplying teachers with photo ID badges for some time, but it doesn’t do much good if the ID is stuffed in their back pocket, wallet, or purse. That’s why providing a badge holder and lanyard is the perfect solution for properly identifying teachers.

Useful Reason Why Teachers Need Badge Holders and Lanyards:

  • Students can quickly find a teacher should they need assistance or if an emergency situation occurs.
  • Teachers will be able to quickly identify other colleagues in a highly populated area like the cafeteria, at a rally, or outside.
  • Both teachers and students will be able to identify a visitor who isn’t associated with the school or hasn’t been vetted by an administrator.

For these reasons, Specialist ID, an online wholesaler of badge holders and accessories, recommend the following to accompany your teacher’s photo ID:
