Auburn High School implementing visitor management system effective April 22, 2019
(April 5, 2019) – In an ongoing effort to enhance the safety and security of students and staff in the Auburn Enlarged City School District, Auburn High School will be implementing a visitor management system effective April 22, 2019.
The system is called the Raptor Visitor Management System, and it is designed to add an additional layer of security for students and staff at Auburn High School. The Raptor Visitor Management System will allow high school staff to screen visitors to the school for safety purposes. The system has the ability to instantly screen against sex offender, custody, and other customized databases.
Upon arrival to Auburn High School, all visitors will be required to present a government issued identification card in order to gain access to the school. Examples of such identification cards include a New York State Driver’s License, a New York State Identification Card, a New York State Benefits Card, or a Military Identification Card. Once the identification card is scanned and the visitor is cleared to access the school building, that person will be given a visitor’s badge with his/her name, photograph, date, time, and intended destination within the school printed on it. Anyone not cleared to enter the school building will be notified immediately.
“School safety is of the utmost importance,” said Jeff Pirozzolo, Superintendent of Schools. “Managing visitors entering our school buildings is a key component to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our students and staff.”
