Notice of Installation of Video and Audio Recording Equipment
Note: Before the District installs video and audio recording equipment in a self-contained classroom or other special education setting in accordance with Education Code 29.022, the District is required to provide advance written notice to all staff assigned to the applicable campus and to the parents of the students receiving special education services in the classroom or setting. For more information, see EHBAF(LEGAL) and (LOCAL).
As required by law, this letter serves as notice that the campus has received a request to install and operate video and audio recording equipment in the following location(s):
The video- and audio-recording equipment will be capable of covering all areas of the classroom or other special education setting, as required by law.
The inside of a bathroom or any other area in the classroom or setting in which a student's clothes are changed will not be visually monitored. However, audio-recording will be conducted in all areas of the classroom or other special education setting.
The sole purpose of video and audio monitoring is to promote the safety of students receiving special education services, and the recordings may not be used for any other purpose. Regular or continual monitoring of these recordings is prohibited.
The District will maintain the footage from these recordings for at least six months, as required by law.
Please contact the campus principal or designee with any questions.
[Note to school administrator: If the District has determined that the request requires placing video and audio equipment in multiple special education classrooms or settings, be sure to indicate all the locations subject to the request.]
