Visitor Check In Management System
School safety is one of Davenport Community Schools’ highest priorities. For many years, schools used pens, paper, and stickers or other manual visitor badges. Striving for greater efficiency and accountability, we now employ Raptor Visitor Management system, a technology-based approach to managing visitor check in/check out procedures with built-in tools to further ensure student and staff safety.
Raptor has two broad purposes: to identify and welcome guests, and to increase school safety.
Raptor promotes parent and community engagement by enabling schools to:
- Issue visitor photo badges
- Monitor volunteer hours
- Produce reports on levels and types of volunteerism
Raptor enhances school security by:
- Scanning visitor drivers’ licenses to compare against registered sexual offender databases
- Alerting campus administrators and appropriate authorities if a match or special alert is activated
- Printing a visitor badge with a photo, date and time, and the visitor’s destination (assuming no special alert or sex offender match is activated)
Visitors will be asked to provide a government issued ID (drivers’ license, passport, etc.) to enter any Davenport Community Schools building. If a visitor does not have a government issued ID, the district can provide an alternate form that must be verified and approved.
