  • Section J: Students


Students shall conduct themselves in a mature and responsible manner, not only in school but also on buses, at athletic programs, and in all school related activities.  Failure to meet expected conduct will result in disciplinary action consistent with established Policies and Procedures of the district and state laws.  (See following pages) 

Video Cameras on Transportation Vehicles

The Board recognizes the school unit’s continuing responsibility to maintain order on school transportation vehicles to ensure the safety of staff and students.  After carefully balancing the need for discipline and safety with students’ interests in privacy, the Board supports the use of video cameras on school transportation vehicles.  In an effort to reduce student behavior violations, the cameras may be used to monitor student behavior during transport to and from school and extracurricular activities.  

When the resulting videotapes are used on a basis for discipline, parents/guardians will be notified and given the opportunity to view the tape of their child.  Students in violation of school discipline/conduct codes shall be dealt with in accordance with established board policy, administrative regulations, and established school practices.

Notice of use of video cameras for disciplinary purposes in school transportation vehicles will be provided to all students, parents and staff in appropriate handbooks on an annual basis.  Moreover, notice that video observation may take place will be posted in each transportation vehicle.
