to Volunteer and the last purpose (#10) is preset
to "Other". You can also determine
the order your visitor purposes are displayed, by
assigning a number display preference of two through
nine (2 - 9). School Check IN requires that
you fill in all purposes.

School Check IN a security system for visitors?
Check IN can certainly
assist your school's security efforts by printing
name identification badges and providing reporting
abilities on who is on your school's campus. A
school security system is only as effective as the
policies and procedures implemented and followed
at the school.
any school's security system first line of defense
begins with securing your campus access (only one
way in and one way out). Insist that everyone
(no exceptions) pass this checkpoint and that your
school's security person personally verify everyone's identification.
Your school's security efforts
are only as good as the policy in place and how
strictly policy and procedures are enforced. Here's
a quick security check
- Are all faculty, administrators
and other school personnel trained in your school's
- Is everyone required
to present identification?
- Is everyone required
to have a visible name badge?
- Are those not displaying
a name badge escorted back to your security
- Do cafeteria delivery
trucks stop at your check-in point or are they
allowed to proceed directly to the delivery
area? (Security Alert)
School Check IN capture and/or print a visitor's picture?
A web cam can be purchased from School Check IN
that captures and/or print a visitor's picture on the Visitor ID Badge.
School Check IN track visitors that are on campus after school hours?
but there's a little trick here. At one hour
after the school's dismissal time, School Check
will automatically check out any visitor who is still
checked in. To trick School Check IN to continue
to track after hours visitor times, any visitor
who intends to remain past School Check IN's default
check out time, should check out after the regular school
dismissal time and then check back in. Visitors
who check in after school is dismissed and before
the default check out time (school
dismissal time + 1 hour) will
be able to remain in the system. If a visitor
fails to check out for after school time, will be
default checked out at 11:59 pm.

who check in and check out . Visitor activity
