Navigate 360 Security Overview

  • The West Chester Area School District implemented a new security system in all of our school buildings effective September 2021. Each school building is equipped with the Navigate 360 Security System. This system is a web-based software application that is being used in school districts around the country, as well as in Chester County, to conduct instant sex offender screenings for all visitors to our school buildings. Navigate 360  will allow our schools to electronically check all visitors against a registered sexual offender database, produce a visitor badge, and monitor visitors once inside our school buildings. The overall goal of implementing Navigate 360 is to continue to provide additional safety measures for our students and staff.

    Please know that the safety of our students is always our first priority. Please review FAQ's on Navigate 360. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me rthornton@wcasd.net.
