As we enter the fall and winter seasons, we need to be prepared for inclement weather and the district would like to ensure that everyone is aware of the ways in which we will communicate...
Dear Provo City School District Parents/Guardians,
Provo City School District administration is pleased to announce the implementation of a new visitor management system at all Provo City School District schools and sites. It is our plan to implement the RAPTOR Visitor Management System beginning October 9th. This new system is part of the district’s goal of school safety for students, staff, and the community.
As a digital safety solution, the RAPTOR system will change the way visitors in the Provo City School District check in and out when visiting our schools and sites, and it will help us keep better track of who is in our buildings at all times.
Upon entering a Provo City School District school or site, visitors will be asked to present a valid approved government-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The system checks the visitor’s name and date of birth for customized alerts such as custody, protective, and restraining orders. This database is the only one checked by the RAPTOR Visitor Management System. No other data from the identification is gathered or recorded, and the information is not shared with any outside agency. This will require all visitors, including parents, to bring a driver’s license or other government-issued identification into the RAPTOR check in area, adjacent to the front office when visiting. This scanning process is quick, easy, and user-friendly and our office staff will be available to assist you. It should also be noted that, for privacy purposes, a copy of your ID is not maintained in the scanner, nor is it kept by the school or site.
Once the ID has been scanned and entry is approved, the system will create a unique badge that identifies the visitor, date, and purpose of the visit. Visitors will be required to wear this badge upon entrance to the school or site and throughout their visit. We ask that all visitors check out with front office personnel before leaving the school or site and leave the visitor badge with them.
The safety of students and staff is the highest priority of the Provo City School District.
Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and support of enhancing school safety protocols in the district. We welcome your feedback after you have had the opportunity to interact with the new system.
