The Poudre School District, in Colorado, will be piloting a controversial biometrics program to make the distribution of free lunches more “efficient.”
The pilot program will launch by May 25, 2023 in elementary, middle, and high schools, if it doesn’t go contested.
According to the school district, the biometric scans would take around two seconds. The program will use identiMetrics scanners, which will replace the current system where students have to enter their ID number on a keyboard to access their free school meal.
The fingerprints will be stored locally by the school district.
