As a component of a comprehensive safe school plan, video surveillance with or without audio may be used in the common areas of schools and on school buses. Surveillance equipment may or may not be monitored at any time. Video recordings also may be used for disciplinary purposes. In a criminal investigation, law enforcement representatives may view video surveillance. Parents may view video surveillance recordings where their student is the subject of the video without the consent of the parents of other students who may be seen in the same video recording. However, no parent will be allowed to have a copy of a video surveillance recording where multiple students can be seen.
