    Using Security Cameras and Closed Circuit TV on Campus

    Installing security cameras and closed circuit television (CCTV) systems can raise privacy rights issues for students, employees, and visitors at educational institutions. These essential security tools can help institutions meet their legal duty to use reasonable care to protect the physical safety of those on campus. Surveillance systems can also deter crime and gather evidence to convict perpetrators.

    Determining Chaperone-to-Student Ratios for Trips

    Chaperones on K-12 student trips can help prevent students from wandering off, control student behavior, and provide back-up during emergencies. Some state or local laws or venues set minimum chaperone-to-student ratios. When ratios are not mandated, institutions should consider the trip's risk and duration, distance traveled, and participants’ ages in determining the appropriate number of chaperones.

    During the winter season, many institutions sponsor student skiing and snowboarding activities, whether as recreation or a course. These sports pose many risks that novices may not fully appreciate, and more experienced skiers and riders may disregard. The following practices can help ensure the safety of all participants.
