The District School Board of Niagara and its schools strive to maintain safe and secure learning environments for students, staff and community members involved in school programs. The District School Board of Niagara supports the installation of Video Security Surveillance equipment at each of its schools and other facilities according to design standards for each type of facility. Following installation, Principals are authorized to operate the systems in accordance with the appropriate Administrative Procedures.
Surveillance activities involving the collection, retention, use, disclosure and disposal of personal information in the form of video surveillance must be in compliance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Since video security surveillance systems complement other means being used to promote and foster a safe and secure learning environment under the Safe Schools Act, cameras will be positioned to record activity only in identified public areas.
