IDs to be mandatory for New Hanover County middle school students

READ MORE: IDs to be mandatory for New Hanover County middle school students
NEW HANOVER COUNTY -- New Hanover County middle schools will soon have a new safety precaution in place: mandatory student IDs. Assistant Superintendent Rick Holliday says students in all seven New Hanover County middle schools will be required to wear IDs by the spring. It's a practice that has been required in county high schools for years. Holliday says the intent is to make school campuses as safe as possible. "We want to make everybody as safe as they can be so if everybody's wearing IDs, everybody knows who you are. And if you don't have an ID, that's the first thing that calls attention to yourself, as perhaps an intruder or somebody who doesn't need to be there." Holliday says as of right now there are no plans to make student IDs mandatory in New Hanover County elementary schools.
