Raptor Sign-In System

Remember Your ID

Please continue to bring in your Driver's License EACH time you enter the building to volunteer or have lunch with your student.

The Raptor system is being installed in all Brighton schools to supplement the district’s program of campus safety for students and staff. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. Raptor will better inform us of the visitors, contractors, and volunteers seeking entry into our schools, and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.

The visitor process will appear like this:

  • Upon entering a district building, visitors will be asked to present an ID, which may be scanned or manually entered into the system.

  • If a parent or guardian does not have government-issued identification, the school staff member can ask to see another form of ID and manually enter the person’s name into the Raptor system to perform a background check. The Raptor system only checks the visitor's name and date of birth, no other data from the ID is gathered or recorded, and the information is not shared with any outside agency.

  • Once an entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose for his/her visit.

It’s important to note that a visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork. If a person does not have identification, he/she can still be given access to the building but will be escorted by a school staff member.

To learn more about the Raptor visitor management system, please visit the Raptor

Technologies website at If you have any questions for district

personnel, please contact Police Liaison Office Christopher Parks at (810) 299-4100.

The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor visitor management

the system provides a consistent means for keeping away people who may present a

danger to our students. We want to thank our community in advance for your

understanding and support for enhancing building safety protocols in Brighton Area
