Goshen Community Schools have instituted changes to create a safer environment for students and teachers. Most notably, secure entrances have been added to the middle and high schools that route visitors directly into an office to check in. Previously, visitors were simply trusted to check-in at the school offices.
Thanks to a 16 thousand dollar grant, the Goshen schools were also able to invest in a visitor management system called Raptor that instantly screens for registered sex offenders in 50 states.
The system can also screen for individuals with restraining orders, custody issues, suspended or expelled students, known gang members or for any other custom alert, such as active warrants through the local police department.
