District 6 implements new visitor, volunteer program
The Greeley-Evans School District 6 Board of Education has adopted new visitor and volunteer policies in an effort to improve safety at all District 6 schools.
Using money secured through the 2017 Mill Levy Override Election, District 6 has purchased a new visitor and volunteer management system through Raptor Technologies. As of August 20, 2018, the first day of school, all visitors to any non-charter District 6 school will need to present a form of identification at the front office in order to visit with your student. Volunteers will also need to present identification to log into the school at which they are serving.
“We know the importance of knowing and managing who has access to our schools at all times,” said Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. “This system gives us the tool to do that more effectively and efficiently, and to help keep our students and staff safe.”
Forms of identification that are accepted include a state driver’s license, a state ID, a military ID, a Mexican consulate ID and a passport. Once the ID is scanned and the identification of the visitor is verified, a visitor or volunteer badge will be printed out and must be worn while the entire time a person is in the school. Visitors and volunteers must also sign out at the office before they leave.
The new system improves security at District 6 schools in several ways. All visitors will have their information scanned against the National Sex Offender Registry. If any visitor is listed on this registry, they will not be allowed unsupervised access to any school, and may be banned from the school in accordance with a new visitor policy.
In addition, the background check performed on volunteers is more robust than the previous volunteer management system, and will help keep serious criminal offenders from volunteering in classrooms and schools.
Finally, this system will allow District 6 officials to know and manage who is in schools at any given time. It will help emergency personnel to account for all people who might be in a school should the site need to be evacuated for any emergency.
