Visiting Our School

South Central Community School Corporation welcomes community members to be involved in our schools as we feel fortunate to have the community as a resource to enhance the quality education of our students. The corporation also prioritizes the safety and well-being of the students and staff at all times, therefore, certain security measures and procedures have been implemented to help protect our schools.

School Hour Visitors
During the school day, all visitors must enter via the front doors (#2 or #3) and sign-in at the front desk. Visitors wishing to enter beyond the office area will be asked to present a government-issued photo ID (driver's license, military ID, passport, etc.) to be scanned by the Raptor visitor management system. This system will check the National Sex Offender Registry to ensure known predators are not approved to enter our schools. A visitor's badge with name and photo will be printed and must be worn at all times while in the building.

A visitor's badge will not be necessary for those who visit to pick-up or drop-off an item in the office, to attend a conference in the office, or to attend other events after school. Admittance of visitors without a state-issued ID will be determined by the administration. The safety of our students is our highest priority, therefore, visitors will not be allowed to join our students during their lunch hours.

Volunteers & Chaperones
The use of the visitor system does not replace the process of performing limited criminal background checks. Background checks must be done for in-school volunteers and field-trip chaperones. Please use the attached form below to complete the background check. Forms must be submitted to the school office and approved prior to any volunteer activity taking place. A background search that returns results with an alert will be evaluated on an individual basis and administration will determine if an individual will be permitted to volunteer. Contact the school office with any questions.
