Camera's in your office

Specialties School

Updated:   Published

Do any of you have camera's in your office? This was just brought up in our team meeting this morning. I am in California at a private school. I am 99% sure the secretary hates me and just wants to spy on me, but at the same time, my door is always open unless I am at lunch or off campus.

Why do they want to do this? This has so many privacy considerations. Where will the camera be pointed? Will it record sound as well as video? I think the only reasonable implementation of video surveillance would be outside of the office to see who walks in and when, but that video of the office itself would be a major HIPAA violation.

You may want to bring the privacy implications up at your next meeting, especially if they are continuing to push this forward...

Thank you! The secretary hates me. That is the reason why

I would object because it's a privacy issue for your students.  It's nobody's business who and why the kids are in your office.
