Batavia City Schools to implement new safety system

Posted at 11:50 AM, Mar 30, 2018

The Batavia City School District plans on using a new security safety measure next month. 

Superintendent Christopher Dailey has announced the district "will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools to strengthen campus safety for students and faculty."

Here's how it'll work: 

  • Visitors will be asked to present identification upon entering the building.
  • This ID will be scanned or manually entered into the system.
  • The Raptor system checks the visitor's name/date against a national database of registered sex offenders
  • Once approved, Raptor will issue a temporary badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. 

Start date is April 9th.
