New school plan to keep sex offenders out

WICHITA, Kansas – A new plan is rolling out tomorrow to ensure student safety in Wichita public schools.

The new system, Hall Pass, will be used to make sure registered sex offenders aren’t able to get into the schools during school hours.

The system runs identification cards through a database for all 50 states to see if the individual shouldn’t be in the schools.

It goes live in the Southeast High area tomorrow and will be brought into all the schools in the district by October.

The district tested the system in some schools back in May.

“We had a couple and we were able to like I said work the situation out to where anybody involved that was a part of the educational process could maintain a part of that educational process and those that weren’t we simply didn’t allow in the school,” said Terry Moses, from Wichita Public Schools. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
