Summertime will bring a security pilot program to a number of Arlington’s public schools, with a full roll-out of the initiative slated throughout the system in the fall.

The new visitor-management system to be tested at five sites during the summer will require visitors, volunteers and contractors to provide specific photo identification, and their identities will then be checked against state and federal sex-offender registries.

Taylor, Barrett and Abingdon elementary schools, Kenmore Middle School and Washington-Liberty (formerly Washington-Lee) High School will serve as pilot locations during the summer months.
