Recording of IEP Team and 504 Meetings

In order to facilitate parents' ability to fully participate in the IEP and/or 504 process, parents of students with disabilities are ordinarily permitted to audio record IEP Team meetings and 504 Team meetings in accordance with the following procedures:



Parents wishing to audio record an IEP Team meeting or 504 Team meeting must utilize their own recording device and provide notice to the Board prior to the date of the scheduled IEP Team or 504 Team meeting.



If parent(s) elects to audio record an IEP Team meeting, the Board will also record the meeting.

Recording of Other Board Meetings Involving Students and/or Parents (e.g., Parent-Teacher Conferences)

Parents are permitted to audio record meetings with the Board provided they notify the Board prior to the date of the scheduled meeting of their intent to record the meeting. If a parent provides the requisite notice and is permitted to audio record the meeting, s/he must use his/her own recording device and the Board will similarly record the meeting.

Video recording of Board meetings is strictly prohibited. Audio recording of Executive Sessions of the Board are strictly prohibited.

Using covert means to make a recording (audio or video) of any meeting or activity at a school, on school property, or at a school sponsored function is expressly prohibited. This includes placing recording devices within a person's book bag or otherwise concealed on the person.

If the Board audio records any meeting, the resulting recording shall become a part of the student's educational record and will be maintained in accordance with State and Federal law.
