Access411 today announced that Prince Georges County Public Schools, in Maryland, has chosen Largo High School to be the first school in the district to implement its award-winning software solution, Comprehensive, Attendance, Administration, and Security System (CAASS), which provides access control at the entry ways of the schools, and captures daily and classroom attendance. Plans to implement the system district-wide in the High Schools are under consideration.

Dr. John E. Deasy, Superintendent of Prince George's County Public Schools said, “The automation of attendance tracking, both for daily attendance and at the classroom level, will allow us to feed this information directly into our system of record for state reporting. By providing accurate and timely reporting, the district can quickly identify trends and make adjustments as needed. In addition, we all know the increasing importance of access-control for schools to protect our children from unauthorized persons entering the buildings. CAASS will help to provide these solutions.”

Largo High School, in Upper Marlboro, MD., has an enrollment of over 1,700 students, which will be identified entering school each day using CAASS. Each student will be issued a photo identification card which they will be required to scan as they enter school each morning, ensuring that only the enrolled students are in the school and prohibiting unauthorized persons from having access to the building. Because the system automates attendance collection it helps to eliminate human error in recording attendance and tardiness, as a result most schools experience more accurate attendance records. CAASS used together with the Access411 Best Practices creates an environment of accountability within the student body.

Phase one of the implementation is part of a broader strategic plan that Prince Georges County Public Schools and Access411 are contemplating in the coming months. Based on feedback from Largo High School, the system could potentially be in every secondary school within the district.

William Morrison, President and CEO said, “Our new relationship with Prince Georges County Public Schools is allowing us to look at this implementation not just for one school, but for the entire district and their needs for data driven reporting on a larger scale. The District has been second-to-none with the enthusiasm over the implementation of the CAASS System at Largo. We feel confident that Largo High School will prove to be a success and we will continue to foster this project forward in the near future.”

The anticipated 1st day of scanning the students into school for Largo High School is April 20, 2007. District officials are planning a site visit shortly thereafter to see firsthand how the CAASS system is being accepted by both students and educators.
