Visitor Check-in System

In an effort to manage our visitors and guests, DCTS utilizes SchoolGate Guardian. The procedures are as follows:

Each visitor will enter the building through the front office and have a state issued driver’s license or other state-issued identification upon arrival at the door. The ID will be scanned and checked against the sexual offender database. Once the visitor information has been scanned, a Visitor ID Badge will be printed.
