Issuing Badges To Students - K-12

One of my K12 customers is considering issuing badges to all of their students. They want to start with a pilot initiative and badge only the high school students. I have a meeting scheduled to discuss the details.

What are the considerations and possibilities involved with badging students? What type of badge technology should I advocate (keeping in mind that reader technology upgrades could be a part of this initiative)? For starters, I am thinking a minimum of iClass due to its cashless vending capability. Are schools (K12) using credentials as a means for purchasing?

Any information on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
