Video Surveillance Policy

The Board of School Trustees authorizes the use of video cameras on corporation property to assist in protecting the health, welfare, and safety of all staff, students, and visitors and to safeguard corporation facilities and equipment. Video cameras may be used in locations deemed appropriate by the Superintendent or his/her designee. 
 
The corporation will notify staff and students through student/parent and staff handbooks that video surveillance may occur on corporation property. 
 
Recorded information from these cameras (“security videos”) showing identifiable students will be treated as an “education record” and will not be produced outside of the corporation except pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or release in accordance with the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (“FERPA”, 20 United States Code 1233 (g), 34 CFR Part 99.) 
 
Security videos showing identifiable employees will be treated as personnel file information under the Indiana Access to Public Records Act.and board adopted policy implementing that act. 
 
For the purpose of this policy, restrooms, locker rooms, and areas reserved exclusively for staff use shall be considered a “private area” of the facility and shall not be equipped with video security equipment. The term “non-private area” shall therefore mean any area on school corporation property not meeting the definition of a “private area”. 
 
All speech and conduct in the non-private areas of the school corporation facilities is subject to being observed, recorded, preserved, and examined by means of security video equipment. No person will have a legitimate expectation of privacy with respect to his or her conduct or speech in the non-private area of a school corporation property. 
 
By this policy, the Board does not mandate or warrant that every non-private location in every school corporation facility will be equipped with security video equipment, nor that the security video equipment will record specific conduct or expression. 
 
The Superintendent or his/her designee will develop and maintain procedures to implement this policy.
