A series of behind-the-scenes mistakes by educators in a Florida school district led to children’s biometric information being culled without their parents’ permission, TheLedger.com reported.
In May, parents of students in the Polk County School District received a letter stating a pilot program would track bus riders using each child’s iris.
Parents could opt out, but by the time they learned about the program, the company charged with gathering the information had already captured images of about 750 children’s eyes.
According to TheLedger.com, a series of missteps ensued, including allowing Stanley Convergent Security Solutions to scan children’s eyes before a contract was finalized.
