IC Schools to Start Visitor ID Checks
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa City schools soon will begin using a new scanning system to check the identification of visitors.
The Iowa City Community School District has spent about $600 at each school to install the Raptor visitor management system.
District chief operating officer David Dude says the district will require visitors to show one of several forms of ID at front offices on their first visits to schools after winter break. Office personnel would scan the IDs, saving the photos, birth dates and names that appear on them, and check the data against sex offender databases.
Office personnel will give visitors ID badge stickers to wear and ask visitors to turn them in when they leave.
