MaST II has implemented bullying programs each year and has moved to using Raptor for background checks of every person who enters the school. The system does an ID check against the Megan's Law list to make sure each individual is clear to enter the school without putting children at risk. MaST II now also uses a finger-scanning system for eating lunch and checking things in and out. It helps avoid lost money or stolen passcodes. In addition, doors are always locked.
