Douglas County School District (DCSD) recently rolled out the
Raptor Visitor Management
system at our school. This system is used by many schools throughout the district and state and will give us an additional layer of safety for our students. We are committed to protecting everyone at Gold Rush and this system helps support our commitment.
Here is how the system and our process will work:
Everyone who is visiting classrooms, joining kids for lunch, or attending a meeting or an event will have their ID/driver’s license scanned. The ONLY database that the Raptor system checks IDs against is the sexual predator database. This system does NOT check any other databases.
All DCSD schools will be using this same system very soon. Once you have scanned your ID at any school location, you will be saved in the system. Therefore, if you forget your ID in your car, DCSD schools that are utilizing Raptor will be able to look you up by your name.
All guests will be given a sticker to wear while they are in our school that is printed by this system. This sticker will have your name, the photo from your ID, and the date and time. For our frequent guests, we will try to save printing costs by placing your Raptor ID in a protective badge sleeve so you can reuse the sticker throughout the year. Each new school year we will rescan all IDs for the current school year.
Please remember to bring your ID with you next time you visit the school so we can scan it and get you logged into our system. If you have any questions, please reach out to me and I’ll work to find an answer for you.
