BOARD POLICY No. 6608
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 with documentation when dealing with inappropriate student behavior. Disciplinary action will be in accordance with policies and procedures on Students’ Rights and Responsibilities.
The superintendent shall prepare procedures for use of the video equipment on buses, the authorized review process for videotapes and the proper disposal of tapes.
