LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Lincoln school board has authorized video surveillance at the district’s high schools.

The Lincoln Journal Star says (https://bit.ly/1mbmUkm ) the board approved the new policy on Monday.

The policy authorizes use of video cameras in the schools and on buses. The cameras can’t be located in places where people have expectations of privacy, including bathrooms and locker rooms.

The policy also says the recordings will be considered student records that could be subject to federal education privacy laws and that the use of video surveillance will be reviewed every year.
