Beginning the 2017-18 school year, APS will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System. The Raptor system will allow us to better monitor visitors, contractors and volunteers who visit our schools.

Upon entering a district building, all visitors, including APS employees visiting the site, will be asked to present a picture ID. A form ID can be a state-issued ID such a driver's license, a US passport, a consular card or a foreign passport. The ID will be scanned into the Raptor software system. The system only checks to ensure that registered sex 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. No other personal identifying information is saved or shared. Raptor does not connect with any other systems including the Department of Motor Vehicles or Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Once entry is approved, Raptor will print an adhesive badge that identifies the visitor, the date and purpose of his/her visit.
