Pricey

22 Oct

Replacement IDs cost $5.  If a student needs an ID but doesn’t have $5, he or she can “charge” it and pay it back later.  We keep track of all charges in a database.  When a student charges, we pull up his or her account and let him or her know how much is owed.  One student (a rather animated freshman) came in to charge an ID.  I pulled up his account and saw that he owed $255.

Me:  Wow!  You owe $255 for IDs!

Student:  [in shock] $255!  $255!

Me:  Yes, $255.  You might have the record for having charged the most IDs!

Student:   I knew I was good at something!

    Anyone losing their ID more than 50 times should be required to have it tattooed.

    Have you even been in school for 50 days? How did this kid lose their ID 51 times already?!

      Our system keeps track of what they charge the whole time they are in the district. So a lot of that was leftover from middle school 😉
