LCPS requires all visitors to show a picture ID and state a purpose for their visit in order to have an exterior door unlocked for them. Once inside, visitors have to check in at the office.
Starting August 2017, school personnel will scan visitor's ID in the Raptor Visitor Management System. This new system has been installed in all district schools. The Raptor software will compare the visitor’s name, date of birth and photo against a national database of registered sex offenders.
Additional information from the driver’s license or other form of government-issued identification is not gathered. The system is not connected to any other database, including that of the Department of Motor Vehicles. Once the driver’s license or other form of identification has been scanned, the system will generate a badge that states the visitor’s name, date and purpose of visit.
“The Raptor system is utilized across many progressive school divisions and will provide all LCPS Schools with identical capabilities. Staff who manage visitor access will have an automated confirmation against the Virginia Sex Offender database, assuring stronger safe practices,” said LCPS Supervisor of Safety and Security Suzanne Devlin.
