Starkville school board adopts policy on meeting recordings

By The Associated Press

STARKVILLE — The Starkville School Board has adopted a new policy to give it the authority to regulate recording at board meetings.

Board members agreed Tuesday to remove from the proposal a requirement of advance notice from anyone intending to photograph or make audio and video recording of regular and special school board meetings.

Board president Keith Coble says the school board also removed stipulations for battery-powered cameras and written consent to record a student present at a meeting.

Coble says the board will have the authority to halt any recording that disrupts a meeting with loud noise or lights.
