At Dobie Junior High there are many rules that are set for school requirement. One such rule is having to wear an ID while at school. This rule applies to everyone, including teachers, staff and students. Some students do not enjoy having to wear their ID’s around the neck, but others don’t mind them as much. Even though it’s not a big deal to some, almost everyone at the school has an opinion or questions why we are required to wear them every single day.So Dobie news wanted to hear some of your opinion’s on this rule. We interviewed many teachers and students to see what they thought and below are the questions our journalists asked them, including their answers.

Q: What do you think of the ID rule? A: “I think it’s great…the whole world revolves around identity.” Interview #5 Mrs. Beck (D-hall).Q:What do you think of the ID rule?

In the morning at Dobie Jr. High, you must have your ID with you for the school day. If you don’t, you are given a detention called d-hall before school starts and are not released until the first bell rings. What do you think? What do you think is appropriate for those who forget their ID’s? We asked a few people’s opinions on the matter.Interview #1 Mrs. Muha (Social Studies).Do you think students should have to serve D-hall if they forget their ID?A: “ I think they should get 1 pass and then get a D-hall and they should have a pass every nine weeks, making them have to get a D-hall everytime is a little harsh.”Interview #2 Naudia Mayers (Student) Grade: 8.Q: Do you think students should have to serve D-hall if they forgot their ID? A: “I think they should get a pass before they get in trouble.”Interview #3 Jacob Isola (Student) Grade: 8.Q: Do you think students should have to serve D-hall if they forget their ID? A: “No I think they should give us one warning first.”Interview #4 Mrs. Hecox (Math/ Algebra).Q: Do you think students should have to serve D-hall if they forgot their ID? A: “I agree because it’s a personal responsibility.”Interview #5 Mrs. Beck (D-hall)Q: Do you think students should have to serve D-hall if they forget their ID? A: “Sometimes students forget and that’s understandable. But there are some who just refuse to wear their ID because they just don’t like to follow the rules.Wearing your ID should become a habit like doing homework. Having to serve D-hall is just a reminder to be responsible.”

Our ID’s are used for many things. For example; signing into programs for school, we use it to pay for lunch out of our account, and an easy way teachers to identify your name and grade.
