Eanes ISD Visitor Check-In Security

As part of the district and each school emergency plan, all visitors to any
of the EISD schools and facilities are required to check in at the front
office during regular school hours and wear issued Visitor Badge. EISD
currently uses the Raptor System.

What is the RAPTOR system?
RAPTOR is a computer software system that enhances school security
by reading visitor drivers’ licenses, comparing information to a sex
offender data base, alerting campus administrators if a match is found,
then (assuming no match was made) printing Visitor badges that include
a photo.

How does it work?
Drivers’ license information is compared to a data base that consists of
registered sex offenders from 42 states including Texas. If a match is
found, a campus administrator is notified so school access can be denied
to that visitor.

Why is EISD using this system?
Safety of our students is our number-one priority. The system is an
efficient method for checking the status of a visitor as a potential sexual
predator. The system also quickly prints visitor badges that include a
photo, the name of the visitor, time and date – all enhancements from
what Eanes schools have done in the past.

What other information is the school taking from drivers’ licenses?
Only identifying information for purposes of comparing to the registry
will be read from drivers’ licenses. Additional visitors’ data will not be
gathered and no data will be shared with any outside company or
organization.
