Charleston high schools revamp visitor security system

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Feb 09, 2010  ||   ,

West Ashley High School, in Charleston, S.C., is changing the way it handles campus visitors with the installation of a new computer system, reports The Post and Courier.

Different from the school’s old method of handling visitors, which was simply flashing your drivers license, the school now uses computerized system to run visitors’ names through a national sex-offender database. If everything checks out the guest is printed a visitors’ badge.

In roughly a minute, the new system can check a guest’s name, scan his or her photo identification and print the picture, school name, date and their destination on a sticker. For those who are regular school visitors, the system has a quick sign-in feature that allows them to have a badge printed without an ID scan each time.

It also has the capability of printing reports showing every visitor in the building, which could be useful in case of an emergency. Every Charleston County School is scheduled to receive the same system at the beginning of March.
