The Homeroom Option
The POS homeroom option permits the cashier to select a classroom to display on the touch screen. The teacher's name is displayed along with each student. The students are displayed by name and photo. The photo is displayed if the district has supplied Systems Design with a file containing each photo with the file name being the student ID in jpeg format. The cashier may simply touch the name of the student for which the meal is to be recorded. This method is touchless for the student as only the cashier may touch the screen. The system may be set to Express Input so that the only action by the cashier record a meal is to touch the student name. This option is good for recording meals in the classroom using the collected home room rosters as input or as student come through the cafeteria line by classroom.
