Security Camera Supervision

DRAFT

Policy Title: Security Camera Supervision
Code No. 502.7

The Board supports the use of security cameras as a means to monitor and maintain a safe environment for students and employees, as deemed necessary by administration. The contents of a videotape or its digital equivalent may be used as evidence in a student disciplinary proceeding.

The content of the video recordings may be a student record subject to board policy and administrative regulations regarding confidential student records. In such case, only those persons authorized by law, including those persons with a legitimate educational purpose may view the recordings. In most instances, those individuals with a legitimate educational purpose may be the superintendent or designee, building principal, transportation director, bus driver and special education staffing team. A parent may view the video recordings of their child to the extent provided by law.

A video recorded during a school-sponsored trip, such as an athletic event, may also be accessible to the sponsor or coach of the activity. If the content of the video recording becomes the subject of a student disciplinary proceeding, it will be treated like other evidence in the proceedings.

Students are prohibited from tampering with the security cameras. Students found in violation of this regulation shall be disciplined in accordance with the District’s discipline policy, will be reported to the police, and shall reimburse the District for any repairs or replacement necessary as a result of the incident.
