    Audio and Video Monitoring (Policy#810.1)
    The Seneca Valley School District has adopted a policy that authorizes audio and/or visual recording on school buses or school vehicles for disciplinary or security purposes. The audio/video recordings on school vehicles would be exempt from disclosure under the Public Right to Know law because such recordings constitute an educational record protected from disclosure by FERPA. Principals, their designees, bus garage managers and transportation department personnel are the only people allowed to view the recordings. Law enforcement may also view the recordings if school officials deem necessary. Each school bus or school vehicle with audio and/or visual recording devices, will post a notification in clear sight so driver and passengers understand their actions and communication may be recorded. The audio and/or video recording will not be operating if the vehicle is used for other purposes not school related.
