METHODOLOGY:

This bill requires the installation and operation of video surveillance cameras on all school buses provided through special education services related to a student’s individualized education program.  The Department does not have information on how many such buses are in operation that would be subject to this bill, nor the cost of installation and operation of cameras, and therefore is unable to estimate this bill’s impact on local school district expenditures.
