I'm putting together a bid for a school district that is implementing a new surveillance system. In the architectural drawings, there is a camera and microphone drawn into each classroom. I've searched and searched for specific cases of how other districts handled this, but only came up with vague instances, and none in which this was taken to court in a one-party state.
My biggest concern is that we are located in a one-party state, which would be against the law to record any conversations going on in any classroom with a microphone. Could the district skirt this by simply notifying all faculty, students, and parents that audio recording is taking place? Or is this just illegal all the way around?
Also, should we win this contract and the work performed, is the integrator liable for installing audio recording equipment where it shouldn't be installed?
Does anybody have cases they can point me towards on this, or any light you can shed on the issue?
