The District shall comply with all applicable state and federal laws related to the use of video surveillance and as related to storing and maintaining video recordings.
The superintendent or designee is directed to develop regulations governing the use of video surveillance in accordance with applicable state and federal law and Board policies and regulations.
Recording of teacher instruction for purposes of completing a licensed personnel performance evaluation is not intended to be covered by this policy and shall not be permitted except as provided by state law.
