Amateur shutterbugs who like to snap shots on Pasco County public school campuses may soon find themselves facing disciplinary action.
The Pasco County School Board will consider proposed revisions to its student code of conduct during tonight’s meeting. The changes would require students to ask permission before they snap shots of people on campus, according to The Tampa Tribune.
Students would also be required to get permission from subjects in their shots before they post images on social media sites, such as Facebook. The restrictions would cover videos, as well.
Using cameras in bathrooms, locker rooms and a school clinic would be strictly off limits.
What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments section.
If the proposed changes get a green light from the board tonight, another public hearing would take place before they are finalized for the 2012-13 school year.
The board meets tonight at 6 p.m. in the district administration offices building No. 3, 7205 Land O’ Lakes Blvd. It will also address a number of other issues, including requests from five charter schools to have their enrollment caps raised.
