EEAEFA - Video Surveillance on School Property
VIDEO SURVEILLANCE ON SCHOOL PROPERTY
The School Board authorizes the use of security cameras for the purpose of enhancing school safety and security. The School Board’s goals are to promote and foster a safe, secure teaching and learning environment for students and employees; to promote public safety for community members who visit or use school property; and to safeguard facilities and property. Security cameras will not be placed in confidential and private locations such as classrooms, bathrooms, conference rooms and private offices.
Security cameras may be placed in school buses, parking lots, school entryways and other areas on school grounds. Security cameras may also be placed in areas of common use within buildings, including but not necessarily limited to, school foyers, the school office, hallways, and cafeterias, libraries and gymnasiums.
Security cameras may be used for the following purposes:
To investigate suspected violations of School Board policies or school, or other inappropriate conduct.
To monitor activities on school property (including buses) to protect safety and to enforce school rules, policies and the law.
By law enforcement to address school safety issues or to investigate possible criminal behavior.
Notices will be posted in public entryways to the building and other conspicuous locations informing persons that the buildings and grounds are monitored by security cameras.
The Superintendent may develop and implement any necessary administrative procedures regarding the use of security cameras.
