School Gate Guardian

Central York School District uses a visitor management software program 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. A protocol is in place for those who might not have a state-issued ID. 

Visitors who have the all-clear 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 of the badge so it cannot be reused. The process to scan an ID, run the check and print a badge takes about 30 seconds to complete.
