School Bus Video Cameras

Video Cameras on School Buses

Policy 6608


The board authorizes the use of video cameras on district operated school buses for the purpose of reducing student conduct problems, thus providing a safer environment for the transportation of students.

Recent advances in video technologies will help assure a safe environment on school buses and provide school officials, drivers and parents/guardians/custodians with documentation when dealing with inappropriate or unsafe student behavior. The information obtained from video monitoring may be used to support disciplinary actions which will be in accordance with policies and procedures established regarding Student Responsibilities and Rights.

The superintendent shall prepare procedures for the use of video equipment on buses. The procedures will include authorized review processes for video tapes and the proper disposal of tapes.
