Safe Visitor Management System

In our continuing efforts to ensure the safety and improve the security of our Students and Staff in the School City of East Chicago, we will begin using an electronic Visitor’s Log at all Schools, beginning in March 2018.  It is called the Safe Visitor Management System.

In order to enter any School City of East Chicago School campus all Visitors must provide the School Receptionist with a valid form of Photo Identification that must display their full name and date of birth.    

The Safe Visitor Management System scans a visitor’s Driver’s License/or Identification (ID) Card and checks the information against the National Sex Offender data base. If no match is found, the system will print a Visitor’s Sticker with a picture identifying them as an approved visitor.

The Safe Visitor Management System only scans the Visitor’s Name, Date of Birth and Photo for comparison purposes.  No other personal identifying information is saved.

If the system raises a question about a visitor’s background, the school administrator(s) will take the necessary steps to ensure the appropriateness of each individual’s visit.

The Identification Card you provide cannot be expired; and it must display your printed photograph, full name and date of birth.

If there is a reason that a parent or guardian will not be able to provide a Valid Identification Card you will need to contact your student’s School Office to make special arrangements in order to enter their school.
