Students in Bossier Parish will be saying goodbye to using cash, loose change, or cards to pay for lunch. The school district is adding palm scanning technology to each school cafeteria as the preferred option for students to buy lunch.
Parents received notification Wednesday of the installation of the palm scanners.
"Sometimes they say they do not get much time at all, they say they only get 10 or 15 minutes," says Bossier Parish parent Long Nguyen.
District officials say this technology will move lunch lines faster giving students more time to eat.
The scanners use infrared lasers to map out each student's vein coordinates. According to school officials, it will take only seconds for the system to recognize the student's data to purchase the lunch from their school account.
"There is no risk of personal information being shared," says Kim Anderson with MCS Software.
However, all parents are not convinced this is needed. KSLA News 12 received an email from one Bossier Parish parent who is concerned this technology will desensitize their student to the need to protect private information.
School Board officials say the system is adding an extra layer of security for students and parents.
Parents do have the option to opt out of the program.
Within 6 weeks this program will be active in all Bossier Parish Schools, and it begins at Waller Elementary School on Monday.
