6608 Video Cameras on School Buses

The Board authorizes the use of video cameras on district operated school buses for the purpose of reducing discipline problems, thus providing a safer environment for the transportation of students. The reason for recording the transportation environment is to provide school officials, drivers, and parents/guardians/custodians with documentation when dealing with inappropriate student behavior. Disciplinary action will be in accordance with policies and procedures on student rights and responsibilities.
The superintendent or designee shall prepare procedures for use of the video equipment on buses, the authorized review process for video tapes, and the proper disposal of tapes.
