Baltimore County Public Schools is in the process of implementing a One-card Identification system for all students and staff. 
In the fall of 2014, students will be issued  a One-card, which they will use for building attendance and to check out library materials. The secondary schools will use the One-card to record classroom attendance throughout the day, as well. In the near future, all students who ride county school buses will use the One-card to check on and off the buses.  This identification system is one more step in improving our student and staff safety and security.
Questions regarding this information should be directed to Dale Rauenzahn, Executive Director at 410-887-4360.
