“Raptor” Visitor Management System Implemented

Claiborne County Schools is NOW AMONG THE SAFEST schools in America when it comes to protecting children from SEXUAL PREDATORS thanks to new Raptor Screening System. 

The new visitor management tool quickly performs background checks on all visitors, contractors and volunteers.  It also enables each school to customize its system by including custody alerts and more! 

Claiborne County Schools will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System to improve campus safety for students and faculty. The new ID card scanning system provides practically instant screening of visitors, contractors, and volunteers for sex offender status and custom alerts such as custody orders. A hi-tech replacement to what used to be an old-school visitor sign-in sheet; Raptor can also track students who arrive late or leave early and faculty who sign in and out of the building. As a result, Raptor gives a more accurate head count of who’s on campus in case of an emergency.

Upon check-in, each first-time visitor will be required to present their state or federal government-issued identification card. The Raptor system scans the ID and automatically checks each person entering school grounds against the national database of registered sex offenders, as well as against a custom alert database created by each district or school. Once a visitor is cleared by the Raptor system, a visitor badge is printed that includes a photo as well as the individual’s name, date, time of entry, and destination. If a potential threat is identified, the Raptor system sends instant alerts to designated staff via email and text.

“We’re excited to be incorporating Raptor in our schools,” said Dr. Linda Keck, Director of Schools. “People are checking in and out of campus constantly. It’s a revolving door of visitors, volunteers and vendors, and the Raptor system offers an extra layer of protection. Whether it’s making sure a student is being released to the right parent, or whether a volunteer, visitor, or vendor has been cleared to enter our campus, we know with Raptor we’re doing everything we can to keep our students and faculty safe.”

The Raptor System will be in place in the Claiborne County Schools at the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
