Video Camcorders on buses
The school district has many
school buses, and hundreds of routes
each day. A small numberof students
have caused problems for others by
violating the conduct rules contained
in the student handbooks.
To help prevent and monitor such
occurrences, the district has installed
video camcorder stations in its buses,
and from time-to-time will be
videotaping bus routes. The cameras
are not visible to students, so they
will not know when they are being
If misconduct or violation occurs,
and if it has been recorded by the
camcorder, the tape will be reviewed
and the evidence analyzed. Students
who do not follow the bus safety
rules may be referred for disciplinary
Pictures and sound on these tapes
are protected from disclosure as
"student records," and will be
governed by appropriate school, State
and Federal rules on student privacy.
If a tape is used for disciplinary action,
the parents may view the tape. Tapes
not used for disciplinary purposes
will be erased and re-used.
Should you have any questions,
or need to view a tape, please contact

The Week of the Young Child
i'j our time to demonstrate honor
and respect to our children today
If there is anything we wish to
change in the child, we should first
examine it and see whether it is not
something that could be better
changed in ourselves.
Children are smart. Remember
how we used to imitate our parent's
behavior? We'd dress up like them,
mimic their words, even copy their
attitudes. We wanted to be just like
them because we thought they were
the most wonderful people in the
world. We can see this happen all
around us, younger ones imitating
parents, older brothers and sisters,
and older friends.
The problem is that children
imitate not just healthy behavior and
attitudes, but also sometimes the not-so-healthy
behavior and attitudes.
We get very uncomfortable when we
look at a younger person misbehaving
and see ourselves in that person.
Suddenly, we aren't flattered any
When we see thing we don't like
in others, we must first look at
ourselves to see if we need changing.
This is all we can do - change
ourselves. Others may follow our
example or they may not, but we can
be sure that, when we watch our own
behavior, most of what we see of
ourselves in others will be flattering.
What change can I make in myself
to set a good example for the young
