Dear Charleroi Learning
Charleroi Area School District is pleased to announce an additional safety
measure that we will be implemented during the 2018-2019 school year. This
added layer of visitor management system (Raptor) security will be utilized in
all of our schools. The system will better allow us to track visitors,
contractors, volunteers, student check-in/out, and provide us with a safer,
more monitored environment for our students and staff.
Here is how it works:
upon entering the building, you will be asked to present a valid state-issued
ID, which will be scanned into the system. Upon reading the information, Raptor
will check the national database to identify sexual offenders. It is important
to note that the Raptor system only scans the name, date of birth and photo for
comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. Additional data from the driver's license is not gathered nor is the system connected to any other system such as the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore any other information connected to the driver's license is not part of the system and is not accessible to any of the users.
If you are interested in learning more
about the visitor management system, please visit the Raptor Technologies at website
Once entry is approved,
Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the
purpose of his/her visit. These badges must then be returned at the
conclusion of the visit.
The safety of our
students is our highest priority and the
Raptor visitor management system provides a consistent way to protect our
children. Therefore, all visitors to the school must be
scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge.
Thank you, in advance,
for your understanding and support of enhancing school safety protocols in our
