Dear Parents, Alexandria Community School Corporation is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools to enhance the district’s safety program for students and staff. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our building at all times, and the visitor management system will allow us to do that. It will allow us to better track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff. 

Upon entering one of our schools, visitors will be asked to present a valid state -issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The visitor management system will check to ensure registered sex offenders are not entering our buildings. It is important to note that Raptor 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 on the ID is not scanned by the system and is not accessible to any of the users. Once entry is approved, the visitor management 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 in the office or pick up paperwork. In the event that a person does not have identification, he/she can still be given access to the building, but will be escorted by a school staff member. 

The safety of our students is our highest priority, and the visitor management system provides a consistent way to keep our students safe from potential dangers. Therefore, all visitors to the school must be scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge. Thank you in advance for understanding and supporting our enhanced school safety protocols.  Sincerely, Melissa Brisco
