The Raptor System at Gowanda CSD

In an effort to improve the safety and security of our campus, the district has a visitor management system (Raptor) that captures information from a visitor’s driver’s license and/or other official government issued photo ID. The system maintains a record of individuals entering and exiting our school buildings. The system has the potential to network with public safety databases such as the national sex offender registry as a means to enhance campus safety.

Since January 2019, visitors have been asked to present their driver’s license or other official government issued photo ID if they wish to travel beyond the main school office or district office during school hours. The door monitor will scan the visitor’s identification and produce an adhesive badge to be worn while in the building. The system will record the visitor’s name and time of visit. When exiting the building, the visitor should exit through the same door as entered with door monitor to be checked out of the system.

In order to maintain the effectiveness of the system, we insist that all visitors be prepared to provide proper photo identification in order to gain access to the building beyond the main office or district office.

Thank you.
