Visitor Management System

Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the visitor management system will allow us to do that. The visitor management system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.  


Upon entering a district building, visitors will be asked to present an ID such as a Driver’s License, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system.  If a parent or guardian for any reason does not have a US government-issued ID, the school staff member can use any form of identification and manually enter the person’s name into the visitor management system.  Any fake ID or inaccurate information given will be subject to criminal charges. The visitor management system will check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our school campuses without our knowledge.  The visitor management system checks the visitor's name and date of birth for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders.  The registered sex offender database is the only official database checked by the visitor management system. No other data from the ID is gathered or recorded and the information is not shared with any outside agency. Once entry is approved, visitor management system will issue a badge that identifies the visitor along with a picture of the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. The visitor management system also allows the school to add notes to the system for custody, restraining order, and visitors who are banned.  A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork.  


The safety of our students is our highest priority and the visitor management system allows us to quickly identify those that may present a danger to our students.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.


The plan is to have the system up and running beginning the week beginning February 24th.
