Visitor Management System Brings Changes

Safety of our students and staff is our number one priority.

Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, visitors to Lower Dauphin schools will be required to scan a driver’s license or approved identification card to receive a visitor’s pass.

The visitor will hand a state-issued identification card to an LD staff member, who will scan the ID card through a card reader. The reader will gather necessary information from the license.

The information will then be run through a district-maintained database. If no matches are found, the staff member will print a visitor badge that includes the visitors name, photo, reason for visit and location of visit.

Upon completion of the visit, the visitor will return to the office to scan the barcode for exit and return their badge to a staff member.

All first-time visitors to any school facility will be scanned by the SchoolGate Guardian System, however, the system does recognize return visitors and volunteers.

The system collects the first name, last name, date-of-birth and the photo of the visitor to print the badge. Any other information on the ID is ignored by the system. None of this data will be shared with any other company or organization other than law enforcement and this will only occur in the event of an incident.
