MCS installs new visitor management system, requires IDs

Marion City School's mission statement affirms that MCS will maintain a safe, respectful and caring environment in which all students can learn. We are implementing programs and steps to improve school safety and security in the coming months to do that, as we recognize that the safety of our students is among our highest priorities.

One of first steps is to begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools. The system is designed to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers. Upon entering the building, visitors will be asked to present an ID, such as a driver's license or state ID card that can be scanned or manually entered into the system. If the visitor does not have a government-issued ID, the school staff member can use another form of identification. Our preferred alternative ID based upon school policy is a utility bill that states the same address as the student's address on file.
