Plymouth Public School District is pleased to announce that we are using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools to strengthen campus safety.
Part of keeping our school community safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. The Raptor system will better enable us to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for all.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.
What to expect when entering a school building
You will be asked to present an ID such as a driver’s license or passport.
Once a visitor’s entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date and the purpose of their visit.
What is Raptor checking
The Raptor system checks the visitor's name and date of birth for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. The registered sex offender database is the only official database checked by the Raptor system. No other data from the ID is gathered or recorded and the information is not shared with any outside agency.
Who needs to scan in
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 office.
What type of IDs will work with Raptor
The scanner is able to scan all U.S. government-issued licenses, state identification cards, concealed handgun licenses, consular ID cards, green cards, active military cards, and passport card (not the full passport). It does not officially scan other countries’ identification cards.
Is an ID scan necessary each time a person comes into the building
No. After the first scanning, the Raptor operator would simply find the visitor’s name in the system (first or last name look-up) and use the record of the previously-scanned ID to sign the visitor in and print a visitor’s badge. This makes check-in much easier after the initial visit
Will the Raptor System be used for after-school activities?
No, the system will only be used during normal school hours, Monday through Friday.
