Last month, an investigation by Isthmus revealed that, in 2019, top administrators at the Madison Metropolitan School District greenlit plans to install hidden cameras in a changing room used by disabled students at Madison East High School.
The goal of the plan, which also included hidden cameras in a coach’s office near the boys’ locker room, was to catch a staff member who was reportedly sleeping on the job.
The hidden cameras were not made known to East High staff or even then-Superintendent Jane Belmore.
Since the revelations, parents and teachers have rallied against MMSD — calling for more transparency and accountability in the ongoing internal investigation.
