2410 - AUDIO, VIDEO, AND DIGITAL RECORDING OF MEETINGS

The School Board believes that the education of children is a joint responsibility, one it shares with the parents of the school community. The Board realizes it has the responsibility of protecting the rights of students in keeping and sharing student records.

In order to facilitate parents' ability to fully participate in the educational process, parents ordinarily are permitted to audio record meetings such as parent-teacher conferences, case conferences (i.e., IEP meetings), meetings under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, discipline-related conferences and the like, in accordance with the procedures set forth below.

 

A.

Parent(s) wishing to audio record such a meeting must utilize their own recording device and tapes or disks and provide notice to the Corporation prior to the date of the scheduled meeting.

 
 

B.

If parent(s) elect(s) to audio record such a meeting, the Corporation also will record the meeting.

For purposes of this policy, a recording is defined as the capture of a person's individual voice through audio, digital, or other electronic means.

Video recording of meetings such as parent-teacher conferences, case conferences (i.e., IEP meetings), meetings under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, discipline-related conferences and the like is strictly prohibited.

The requirements of this policy shall not be interpreted to be in conflict with the provisions of Policy 5136 - Use of Personal Communication Devices as it pertains to recordings. Nor shall the requirements of this policy be interpreted to extend to school-sponsored public events, where there can be no expectation of privacy. A school-sponsored public event is any school-related activity, whether free or at which an admission fee is charged, that members of the public may attend. These include but are not limited to athletic competition, plays, musical performances, awards ceremonies, and graduation. See Policy 9160 - Public Attendance at School Events for additional information about restrictions on recording at such events.

If the Corporation audio records meetings such as parent-teacher conferences, case conferences (i.e., IEP meetings), meetings under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, discipline-related conferences and the like, the resulting recording shall become a part of the student's educational record and will be maintained in accordance with State and Federal law.
