Card Key Access Badge

New employees should ask their supervisor if their position requires a card key access badge or School Employee ID Badge.

If the position requires a card key access badge, the site supervisor must authorize the request via email to School Police:

  1. Supervisor must email .
  2. Include the following:
    1. Employee name.
    2. Employee ID number.
    3. Job position.
    4. Level of access.

After the supervisor provides authorization over email, the employee must bring the following information to the School Police office:

  • Current paycheck stub.
  • Photo ID (must include full name).

Lost Cards

If a card key is lost or stolen, the employee must immediately report it to School Police. Report in-person or by phone at (505) 243-7712.

School Police will disable the card and, if needed, issue another card.
