Surveillance Cameras

To promote and foster school safety and ensure a safer and effective learning environment, surveillance cameras are installed in school buildings and on school grounds. These cameras are only utilized in public areas where there is no “reasonable expectation of privacy” and may or may not be monitored at any given time. However, activity is continuously recorded. Any video recording used for surveillance purposes shall be the sole property of the District. Requests for viewing a video recording must be made in writing to the Superintendent or his designee.

No Trespassing

There is no trespassing on school property after dark.  Any individual caught will be subject to arrest.
