Universal Citation: TN Code § 49-6-2119 (2020)
- A local board of education shall adopt a policy that establishes a process to allow a parent of a student to view photographs or video footage collected from a camera or video camera installed inside a school bus if the local education agency (LEA) has one (1) or more school buses operating in the LEA with a camera or video camera installed inside a school bus that is used to transport students to and from school or school-sponsored activities.
- The policy must require that photographs or video footage be viewed under the supervision of the director of schools or a school official designated by the director of schools. The policy must comply with § 10-7-504, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. § 1232g), and other relevant state or federal privacy laws. The policy must establish the duration for which an LEA must maintain photographs or video footage collected from a camera or video camera installed inside a school bus.
- Nothing in this section requires a local board of education to purchase camera or video recording equipment for school buses that operate within the LEA.
- As used in this section, “parent” means the parent, guardian, person who has custody of the child, or individual who has caregiving authority under § 49-6-3001.
