New Visitor Management System
raptor 
Dear Charleroi Learning Community:

The 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 www.raptorware.com

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 district.

Sincerely,

Edward J Zelich

Superintendent

 
Safe School Helpline
Dear Charleroi Learning Community,

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  Clearly preventing school threats and violence is better than reacting to them.  With this famous quote in mind, the most preventive measure our learning community can employ is to obtain information about potential threats before an individual decides or begins to take action.  We continue to encourage and ask our students, staff, and community for their support by reporting concerns to an administrator or through our Safe School Helpline.

Fortunately, students have already started to report questionable conversations that they have overheard.  Our administrative team and school resource officer have been able to immediately investigate each reported incident.  As of today, each reported incident has been deemed non-threatening.  We can assure you that our students have been safe, and we will continue to investigate each and every report.  Please know that you will be immediately contacted if any report is substantiated.  Procedures are in place to work closely with our school resource officer and the Charleroi Regional Police Department to monitor safety concerns within the Charleroi Area School District

Students, parents and community members should use the Safe School Helpline to report threats of violence, suicide, bullying and illegal activity that could harm children in our schools.  This service provides users the opportunity to leave a message or speak with a live crisis counselor for immediate needs.  The helpline is administered by an independent, outside company.  All communications are PRIVATE, CONFIDENTIAL, and ANONYMOUS.


The Safe School Helpline can be accessed via three methods:  by telephone at 1-800-4-1-VOICE ext. 359 (1-800-418-6423 ext. 359); online at www.safeschoolhelpline.com; or by texting 66746 and typing “TIPS” as the message.

This tip line is monitored 24/7.

Our staff members at Charleroi continue to set aside time with students to listen and encourage them to be a part of the solution.  We want to encourage parents and families to have these conversations at home as well.  The National Association of School Psychologists published a helpful resource on Talking to Children about Violence.  You can find that here.

These are certainly tough times for our schools and communities, and we know that students will follow the examples set by adults. We continue to work with our staff to assist them in doing what they can to maintain a sense of calm and reason in our schools.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact me or your building principal.

Sincerely,

Ed Zelich
