Video footage recorded by MCPS security cameras may depict misconduct, a serious incident, and/or criminal conduct on MCPS property, including a school bus. This form should be completed by MCPS school administration after receiving a request by someone outside of MCPS to view a security camera video, including students, parents/guardians, and law enforcement.
Part I should be completed by an MCPS school administrator and then sent to DSSEM for review, export, and preservation of the video. DSSEM will arrange for review of the video by the school principal, a representative from OTLS/OSSI, and a representative from OGC. The principal, DSSEM, OTLS/OSSI, and OGC must all authorize the viewing of the video by the requestor in Part III of this form. DSSEM will distribute the completed form as noted.
For more information, see MCPS Regulation EGF-RB, Retention and Disclosure of MCPS Video Records, which provides guidance for school staff when viewing, preserving, or disclosing videos from MCPS security cameras.
