A bill that proposes placing audio recording devices inside special needs classrooms with their own bathrooms was recently approved in the House Education Committee.

If approved on the House floor, House Bill 3271 would add audio recording devices to roughly 421 applicable self-contained classroom bathrooms serving special needs students in West Virginia. The measure would add to the expanding security portfolio of special needs classrooms themselves, which already include video recording to monitor for abuse.
