Such photograph shall be kept within the school at a place designated by the principal. At the discretion of the principal, and subject to the approval of the community superintendent for junior high schools or intermediate schools and chancellor for senior high schools, an identification card bearing a photograph of each student may also be required to be kept on the person of such student during hours when the student is attending such school.
