Physical Safety

Board Policy 1230: Visits to Schools

All visitors to school property are required to report to the Building Principal’s office and receive permission to remain on school property. All visitors must show identification and wear a visitor’s badge. When leaving the school, visitors must return their badge.

 

Raptor Visitor Management

All visitors to our schools must present government-issued identification. The Raptor system better allows us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.

 

Secure entrances

All exterior doors are always locked. Most of our schools also have a secured vestibule preventing visitors from entering the school once through the main entrance door unless granted access.

 

Security cameras

Some of our elementary schools have a security camera at the entrance to the building. Plans are under way to install security cameras at each point of entry at all elementary schools. Jefferson Junior High has 36 security cameras installed throughout the building. Security cameras are not actively monitored, but can be viewed live when necessary. The Woodridge Police Department can access the video feeds at any time.

 

Classroom door locks

All classroom doors in all of our schools remain locked at all times.
