The district is partnering with Raptor Technologies from Houston Texas to provide the district with enterprise-level integrated school safety technologies. Business Manager for the district, Craig Mobley tells KNIA/KRLS News the new program has two packages with the first being a visitor, volunteer management program that features the ability for anyone visiting the district to have their ID scanned against the National Sex Offender Registry.
