School Security System

The Canton Local School District has implemented a visitor management software system at each of its schools.

School Gate Guardian requires all visitors to present a valid 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. Protocol is in place for those who might not have a state-issued ID.

Visitors who have been cleared will receive a printed ID badge that includes their photo and name. The badge is self-expiring, meaning within 12 hours of receipt, a red stop sign will bleed through to the front so the badge cannot be reused.

The process to scan an ID, run the check and print a badge takes about 30 seconds to complete. 

Staff members have been trained in how to handle a positive match in the system.
