A: In the state of Georgia, schools are not universally required to have a policy for video cameras in classrooms. However, many school districts and educational institutions do establish such policies voluntarily to address various aspects of video and audio recording within educational settings. These policies typically outline the purposes for which recordings are made, consent requirements, access and retention procedures, privacy considerations, and data security measures. Additionally, they often emphasize compliance with federal and state laws, particularly regarding student privacy, such as FERPA.
