New Check in Procedure for Parents


The Escambia County School District is implementing new Raptorware software for many check in and check out procedures.  The system requires a person's driver license or I.D. card.  This scan allows us to check a person's information against the sex offender database before allowing them to enter the school.  This system will also track who is on campus so we will know who is in the building at any given time.  We look forward to working with you as we use this system to improve the security of our campus and maintain the safest environment possible for your student to learn and grow.
