RCSD to Implement New Visitor Management Procedure
Dear RCSD families:
The Roseville City School District is pleased to announce that we will begin using a visitor management system in all of our school buildings in January 2020 when school opens after Winter Break.
The system will better allow us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer, monitored environment for our students and staff.
Here is what you can expect when you visit any of our schools in January. Visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. Upon reading the information, the Raptor Visitor Management System will check the national database to identify sexual offenders. Once entry is approved, the Raptor system will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit.
A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item or pick up paperwork. All visitors who enter the school with the intention of traveling beyond the main office, or staying for a meeting in the office, etc. will be issued a badge and screened.
It is important to note that the Raptor system only scans the visitor’s name, date of birth, and photo for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. Additional visitor data from the driver’s license is not gathered nor is the system connected to any other system such as the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore any other information connected to the visitor’s driver’s license is not part of the system and is not accessible to any of the users. If you are interested in learning more about the visitor management system, please visit the Raptor Technologies website (www.raptortech.com).
The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor Visitor Management system provides a consistent way to aid in keeping away people who may present a danger to our students. Therefore, all visitors to the school must be scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge. The visitor badges must be returned to the office at the conclusion of the visit.
We are making these changes district-wide to help ensure the safety of all students and staff. Administrators and administrative assistants at every building are in training now on the new visitor management software. Our goal is to make checking in and checking out as hassle-free as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we implement this new procedure in our school offices and for your support of enhancing school safety protocols in our District.
