To ensure the safety and security of our school community, the Westfield Public School District uses video surveillance and electronic monitoring equipment in school buildings and on school grounds.  The monitoring of actions and behavior of individuals who come onto school property is a significant factor in maintaining order and discipline and protecting students, staff, visitors, and school and student property. Video surveillance/electronic monitoring systems serve to complement other means employed by the District to promote and foster a safe and secure teaching and learning environment for students and staff. Surveillance information may be shared with the Westfield Police Department when appropriate. Please read Policy 7441 and Regulation 7441 regarding the use of electronic surveillance systems in the district’s school buildings and on school grounds.
