Senate Bill (SB) 507 - Cameras in the Classroom
Senate Bill 507 outlines requirements for school districts and charter schools related to the placement of cameras in special education self-contained classrooms and other settings. Information related to Austin ISD's implementation of SB 507 can be found at the following link:
Parents can submit a request by completing the Request for Video Surveillance Equipment in a Special Education Self-Contained Setting Form (English) (Spanish) and emailing the completed copy to the Campus Principal and Ramon Vega, Campus Support Coordinator, (firstname.lastname@example.org). A member of the Department of Special Education will be in contact to discuss your request. Special Education settings must meet the specific requirements as outlined in SB 507 to be eligible for camera installation.
If you have questions regarding SB 507, please refer to the Austin ISD School Board Policy or contact your child’s Campus Principal.
