Use of Video Cameras on School Buses
Video cameras may be used on school buses as necessary in order to monitor conduct and maintain a safe environment for students and employees.
The content of the videotapes are student records and are subject to District policy and procedure concerning school student records. Only those people with a legitimate educational or administrative purpose may view the videotapes. In most instances, individuals with a legitimate educational or administrative purpose will be the Superintendent, Building Principal, Transportation Director, Bus Driver, and sponsor, coach, or other supervisor. If the content of videotape becomes the subject of a student disciplinary hearing, it will be treated like other evidence in the processing.
The District’s regular suspension procedures will be used to suspend a student’s privilege to ride a school bus.
