BATON ROUGE - The Pointe Coupee Parish School District will install cameras on each of the district's owner-operated school buses.

The school district will spend $22,000 on the equipment.

School Superintendent Linda D'Amico says the cameras will give the district an extra tool to monitor and curb any disciplinary problems that should arise in the future.

Officials say the cameras will help easily identify conflicts between students, ease the stress on bus drivers through more visual supervision and decrease behavior problems.

D'Amico says 22 buses are owner operated in the parish.

D'Amico says a surveillance camera will be outfitted in the front and rear of each owner-operated school bus. She says there's no timetable to get the cameras installed.
