The Phoenix Central School District has installed a new visitor management system in each of their schools to ensure the safety of every student.
The equipment is called the Raptor Visitor Management System. The equipment will track individuals entering each school building, keep unwanted visitors at bay and aid in safety alert systems.
All visitors entering the building will now need to provide a driver’s license during their first visit so that the school can record their presence in the system. Each person will then receive a visitor pass to wear while in the building, and they must sign out at the main office upon departure.
This system will identify potential predators through the sex offender database and alert school officials immediately, creating a safeguard for all students.
Principal Mary Stanton is proud to have yet another level of security in the elementary building saying, “The feedback from parents has been very positive.”
The new system can be a little more time consuming than previous procedures, but district employees feel that the investment is worth the safety of the children.
The district appreciates the patience of parents and other visitors.
