The Troy City School District is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Technologies Visitor Management System in all of our schools to strengthen the security for our students and faculty. We will begin rolling out the technology in our schools after Winter Break. Upon entering a district building, visitors will be asked to present an ID.
