JB school using facial scanner for attendance

JOHOR BARU: SK Taman Perling here has taken a different approach in recording the attendance of its pupils, teachers and staff by using a facial recognition system.

Headmaster Zamri Abd Wahab said the use of the system, introduced this year, was to smoothen the school’s daily operations.

“We are always open to the use of the latest technology, ” he said on the first day of school here yesterday.

Zamri said their school was the first in the state to use the system that would see recorded data being uploaded onto the pupils’ database, which contains the pupils’ attendance record and their personal information.
The system, he said, was donated by non-governmental organisation Myrahub Foundation.

Zamri also hoped that the use of the system could be expanded to include visitors’ registration as it would help strengthen the security of the school.

The school has 1,034 pupils, including preschoolers and a special education class. — Bernama
