VIDEO: Several schools in Texas are asking parents if they want their child’s DNA to be stored on file to make it easier to identify them in an emergency

Several schools in Texas are asking parents if they want their child’s DNA to be stored on file to make it easier to identify them in an emergency.

Testing kits were distributed to K-8 students to take home for parents to administer in the case of a deadly situation such as a school shooting or any other event. According to the Daily Mail, parents can give police an identification card during the crisis so their child can be easily identified. The decision comes from a 2021 bill, titled SB-2158, signed by Governor Greg Abbott, which was intended to help find missing or trafficked children.

The kits include an inkless fingerprint, a saliva sample, and a section where a parent describes their child’s physical features. However, the kits are optional but will be distributed by the schools starting this week.
