If so, what would you recommend?
Yes, there are. A company called ScholarChip sells a student-tracking system (see ScholarChip Mobile App to Allow School to Track Students On the Go). This solution uses an ID with a passive HF RFID transponder, so students must present their ID to a reader when they enter or leave the school, or particular rooms within the school.
Guard RFID Solutions offers a school security system to identify if an emergency occurs, and to help locate students and staff members during such a situation. The SafeGuard K-12 Safety System is designed primarily to monitor students in schools. It includes software, as well as active RFID tags, exciters and readers. GuardRFID also offers a mobile tracking system to help monitor the movements of students onto and off of buses. Schools can use the two solutions to track which children enter and exit a bus, as well as when and where this occurs (see GuardRFID Launches School Security System).
It is also possible to create your own system by purchasing the components and integrating them yourself.
