A: In most instances, security surveillance cameras are used in places that do not violate a student's privacy rights under FERPA like building exteriors, hallways, parking lots, and classrooms.

If a surveillance camera was placed in another area that does violate your daughter's privacy rights, or if the camera captured protected information like her grades, you may be able to report the school to the TEA for a FERPA violation.
