Visitors at the Upper St. Clair elementary and middle schools will have to go through a new sign-in procedure in an effort to increase security.
There are no longer sign-in sheets for visitors. All visitors are required to provide their driver's licenseor other government approved photo ID. A visitor badge will be printed that contains both the visitor's photo and their destination in the building.
The plans to install Raptor were sped up after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT.
Raptor is "cutting-edge visitor management technology." The system performs a sex offender background check against the registered sex offender databases for every visitor. Nearly 8,000 schools and community facilities use the Raptor system, according to the school district.
