Jeannette Junior High Student ID Policy

Jeannette Junior High School continues to work to ensure the safety and security of all staff and students. This is a top priority each and every day. All students at Jeannette will now be required to wear and have visible their school ID badges at all times. Wearing of ID badges is required as part of many workplace environments, as well as post-high school education, college, and university campuses. Furthermore, the wearing of student IDs provides easy identification of students for teachers, substitutes, district staff personnel, and law enforcement if ever needed.
