Videotaping and Photographing Children

You must investigate district policy regarding the videotaping and photographing of students. District policies may range from (a) granting permission to videotape or photograph children for educational purposes only to (b) prohibiting such practice. You must check with your mentor before any videotaping or photographing is planned. If permission is needed from parents, it is your responsibility to get the consent forms signed. If permission has been granted, an array of equipment is available for Penn State student use at the Media Center in Thomas Building.
