Iowa’s Burlington School District now has 15 body cameras they will be putting to use this school year.

After accusations of an administrator kicking a student, the district got the idea from Muscatine School District to get the cameras.

Burlington School District Superintendent Patrick Coen said he wants to see the developments they’ve seen in his school district and by having body cameras for administrators, that will happen.

“We want to make sure that we’re treating people with dignity, honor and respect. parents with dignity, honor and respect and this is a way to say, are we doing that and to kind of check ourselves,” Coen said.

Thirteen cameras will go to principals and assistant principals at all schools in the district. The other two will be on hand if they need them. They’re small and can clip to shirts, ties or pockets.
