Centurion International School, Bangkok is committed to protecting the safety and property of the school community while respecting the privacy rights of our faculty, staff, students and visitors. The primary purpose of the security camera system is to allow for the after-the-fact investigation of incidents that have been reported by teachers, parents and students. The video surveillance system is not intended to be used as a method of tracking the work habits or productivity of individual employees.
CCTV systems are installed (both internally and externally) also for the purpose of creating a mindfulness among the occupants, at any one time, that a surveillance security system is in operation during both the daytime and nighttime each day.
The overall CISB policy of surveillance monitoring or recording, and the use of surveillance cameras at the school are limited to uses that do not violate Thai law prohibiting wiretapping and electronic surveillance of audio communications.
Videos obtained through surveillance monitoring or recording will be retained by the Head Teacher for a length of time deemed appropriate for the purpose of monitoring, but not to exceed 90 days and those recordings must be stored in secure password protected device.
The School retains the right in exceptional circumstances to set up covert monitoring. For example:
Covert Monitoring may take place in classrooms when the circumstances above are satisfied. Covert Monitoring used in classrooms will never be used to observe or assess a teacher’s professional performance. All teachers’ observations will be done in-person and not through the CCTV. Cameras sited for the purpose of covert monitoring will not be used in areas which are reasonably expected to be private, for example, the restrooms.
All approved individuals with access are prohibited from using or disseminating information acquired from CISB security cameras, except for official purposes. All information gathered and/or observations made in the use of security cameras is considered confidential and can only be used for official CISB purposes.
