Horry County Schools SC : Allow Camera's in Special Needs Classrooms

Dear Horry County Schools,

We the parents and supporters of special needs children hope you will consider putting camera's in the classrooms of our special needs children.  This will protect not only your staff, but the children as well.  With camera's on the buses, in the hallways and almost everywhere today, we can't see any single arguement on why this can not be done.

 

To:
Horry County Schools
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Horry County Schools.

----------------
Allow Camera's in Special Needs Classrooms

To protect the students, the school staff and give the parents peace of mind. This will lower the abuse and make the schools more accountable for their hiring and training of staff.
----------------

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It will help provide kids who can't speak up to their abusers if there are any!

      I live in, and pay taxes in, Horry County. I have five grandsons and a granddaughter who attend Horry County schools. One of my grandsons has "Special Needs". I want all of my grandchildren to be protected!

      My granddaughter is a special needs child. Our number one priority should be the safety of these special children.

      My daughter has a chromosome deletion. She is developmentally behind and non-verbal. While we've been blessed with outstanding staff throughout her attendance in Horry county schools not all are so lucky. Our children can't speak up for themselves. I rely daily on communications from others on how her day went and what she took part in. Heaven forbid something occurred and the only way I would know is by an honest bystander having the integrity to speak up. Even then it would be a 'he said/she said' case to prove guilt.

      Cameras are allowed in all 3 of my children's hallways (elementary & middle) and on their buses. I sign permission slips for pictures to be taken by the school. It makes ZERO sense for privacy to be used as an excuse for the lack of cameras inside a classroom. Cost for their placement is less in the end than multiple lawsuits. If the district can afford to pay the Horry county Superintendant of education a salary higher than the State Superintendant, then they can find a way to afford the cost of classroom cameras

      My children attend HCS. I have thought about homeschooling them based on having my own disagreements with the ways they are treated. I have been to the district office before because I have myself been bullied by principals and SRO's.My children have been hurt by teacher's in the past, but because the district backs the teachers and does not "believe the child", it has been swept under the rug. A teacher slammed a desk into my daughter's wrist. My daughter was interrogated by an officer and I was told I was "hindering" an investigation by asking him to stop yelling at him, or I would record the interrogation. My son was attacked on a bus, on video by three older bigger kids that had records, and the SRO said "no magistrate will pick up charges on students." If this is what's happening to kids with no disabilities, my heart and MY SIGNATURE goes out to the innocent, left undefended!
