Parents: Is your internet up to speed?

Steuben County is conducting a survey to find out who still needs and wants broadband services. Steuben County, in conjunction with Yates County, is running an online survey to collect data on our residents to gauge their access (or lack thereof). The information gathered will help us develop an action plan to improve internet service for as many as possible.

If you can, please complete the brief survey online at www.steubencony.org/broadband by January 31.

If you aren’t able to complete the survey online, paper copies are available at the Hornell City School District Office at 25 Pearl Street in Hornell. Thank you for helping with this important initiative!

Raptor Visitor Management increases security of Hornell schools

Beginning Tuesday, January 16, the Hornell City School District will use the Raptor Visitor Management System to enhance security and track visitors in its school buildings.

Upon entering a school, visitors will be asked to present a valid, state-issued ID that will be scanned into the system. The information is then compared with a national database of registered sex offenders and screened for restraining and custody orders. If an alert is given for a visitor, a notification will appear on the computer used to check in. From there, various options are available for alerting a building administrator.

If no alert appears, entry will be approved and Raptor will issue a visitor's badge that includes the individual's name, image, date and the purpose of his or her visit.

The Raptor system only scans the visitor's name, date of birth and photo for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. Additional visitor data from the driver's license is not gathered nor is the system connected to any other system such as the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore any other information on the ID is not scanned by the system and is not accessible to any of the users.

A visitor's badge will not be necessary for those who visit the school to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork.

"The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor visitor management system provides a consistent way to aid in keeping away people who may present a danger to our students," said Superintendent Jeremy Palotti.

"Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our building at all times and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. The Raptor system will better allow us to track visitors, contractors and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff," he said.

If you are interested in learning more about the Raptor visitor management system, please visit the Raptor Technologies website at www.raptortech.com
