NOTICE TO STUDENTS, PARENTS AND STAFF REGARDING
THE USE OF CAMERA SECURITY/SURVEILLANCE ON SCHOOL PROPERTY
The Board of Trustees for the Roseville Joint Union High School District is committed to providing a school environment that promotes the safety of all students, employees, and visitors to district facilities and school campuses. The Board also recognizes the importance of protecting district property, facilities, and equipment from vandalism and theft. This letter (In accordance with Board Policy 3515) is to inform you of the use of campus security/surveillance equipment at Oakmont High School.
For the safety of our students, staff and visitors, the Roseville Joint Union High School District employs camera security/surveillance equipment for security purposes. This equipment may or may not be monitored at any time. Surveillance cameras will be utilized only in public areas where there is no “reasonable expectation of privacy.” Public areas may include school buses; building entrances; hallways; parking lots; front offices where students, employees, and parents come and go; gymnasiums during public activities; cafeterias; and supply rooms. However, it is not possible for security/surveillance cameras to cover all public areas of District buildings or all District activities. District security/surveillance cameras will not be installed in “private” areas such as restrooms, locker rooms, changing areas, private offices or classrooms.
Pursuant to District Board Policy 3515, the District uses security/surveillance cameras on district campuses including Oakmont High School. The recordings from the surveillance cameras may be used in student disciplinary proceedings and may be referred to the local law enforcement, in accordance with District Board Policies and applicable laws and penal code regulations.
If you have any questions or would like to speak with me personally, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Mr. Hasty, Principal
Oakmont High School
