Point Isabel I.S.D. Moves to Enhanced Photo ID Security System in Schools
All visitors to Point Isabel I.S.D. campuses will need a form of photo identification to get into the school buildings during instructional hours. Campuses have Raptor vSoft Visitor Management Software installed at the main entrance of all four schools. This software will help track visitors, contractors, and volunteers at the school, by providing a safer environment for all.
The system works by scanning a government-issued identification such as a driver’s license into the computer. Connected to the Internet, the office personnel can then determine whether the visitor is listed on a sex offender registry.
That information then will allow the front office to follow district procedures and determine whether or not the visitor should be allowed into the school. A sticker bearing the visitor’s name and photo then is printed and must be worn during the campus visit. The new security check will be fully required by the first day of school.
