Student Success Cards

  • Student Success Card Sample

    With a focus on supporting safety and academics, Columbus City Schools will issue Student Success Cards to all students Pre-K-12, starting this school year.

    The purpose of these cards is to increase efficiency, and most importantly, enhance student safety. Student Success Cards are IDs featuring a photo, name, ID number, and school logo.

    During the school year, these Student Success Cards can be used to: 

    • Serve as ID during the school day and athletic events
    • Access online learning
    • Check out books and other age-appropriate materials at any Columbus Metropolitan Library branch 
    • In addition to these benefits, students in grades 9-12 only will be able to access the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) at no charge.

    High School students will have unlimited access to fixed-route transit service so they can get access to school, jobs, tutoring, club and athletic practices. These passes are supplemental and do not replace the District’s yellow bus services that are provided to students who qualify for transportation to and from school. Students are expected to receive cards by mid-to-late September and must wear their cards visibly on the bus and during the school day.

    CCS piloted Student Success Cards over the last several school years.
