Policy 711 Audio Video Recording on School Buses

  • 700 – Non-instructional Operations and Business Services

The purpose of this policy is to establish a school bus audio/video recording system. Video cameras may be placed on school buses under this policy.

The transportation of students to and from school is an important function of the school district, and transportation by the school district is a privilege and not a right for an eligible student. The behavior of students and employees on the bus is a significant factor in the safety and efficiency of school bus transportation. Student and employee misbehavior increases the potential risks of injury. Therefore, the school district believes that audio/video recording student passengers and employees on the school bus will encourage good behavior and, as a result, promote safety.
