Visitor Check-in Procedures
The Miami Valley Career Technology Center uses the Raptor Visitor Management System as an additional component of our district's safety procedures. A big piece of safety, is keeping our students and staff safe and knowing who is in our building at all times and the Raptor system allows us to do just that. The Raptor system better allows us to keep track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our school and provides us with a safer environment for our students and staff during the instructional day.
Upon entering the building, visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, that is scanned into the system. The Raptor system will check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our buildings. It is important to note that the Raptor system only scans the visitor's 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 Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Therefore, any other information on the ID is not scanned by the system and is not accessible to any of the users.
Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit.
A visitor's badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork in the reception area. In the event that a person does not have identification, he/she can still be given access to the building, but may be escorted by a school staff member.

The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor visitor management system provides a consistent way to aid in keeping away people who may present a danger to our students. 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.
