New School Visitor Management System

The Muscogee County School District is pleased to announce our plans to begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools. In addition to our current comprehensive school safety program, the Raptor system will allow us to identify and screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers upon entrance. This will provide us with a safer environment for our students and personnel.

Upon entrance, visitors will be asked to present identification (I.D.), such as a Driver’s License, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. If a parent or guardian for any reason does not have a U.S. government-issued I.D., the school staff member can use an alternate form of identification to manually enter the person’s name into the Raptor system. The Raptor system will then check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our school campuses without our knowledge.

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 I.D. is gathered or recorded and the information is not shared with any outside agencies.

Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor (by name), 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.

The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor visitor management system allows us to quickly identify those that may present a danger to our students. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.
