New Visitor Check in Procedures

Safety of our students is our highest priority. Giddings ISD will be implementing new check in procedures for visitors to all campuses in an effort to increase student safety. Beginning on January 14, 2013, all visitors to Giddings ISD campuses will be required to present a valid government issued photo ID to the campus office. Their identification will be scanned into the Raptor V-soft visitor management and screening system. If cleared, the system will print a visitor’s pass with a photo, date, time, and destination. The system will alert campus administration when registered sex offenders attempt to check in on our campuses.

Visitors that do not have a valid form of identification will only be allowed access to the office or waiting area. Valid forms of ID include a Driver’s License or ID card from any of the 50 states, U.S. Passport Card, Active Military ID, or Mexican Consulate Card.
