SASD Buses Equipped with Audio and Video Recording

We are notifying parents, guardians, family members, and students that SASD equips school buses with audio and video recording equipment. The board authorizes the use of video and audio recording on school buses and school vehicles for disciplinary and security purposes. We will utilize bus cameras that record both video and audio on the bus for any transportation with a school-related purpose. Please view SASD Policy 810.2. We are doing this to promote the safety of all students who ride Smethport school buses.
