Under the new policy, every guest will also be required to register and won’t be left alone to roam.
Until now, the district has used a system where it scans each guest’s driver’s license, but officials said that isn’t practical on days when hundreds of people visit the school.
Scott told TribLIVE the district hopes the new system will make things safer.
