Taking Pictures in School

Freedom of Information Act Saskatchewan

Photographs

1. Who can photograph students at public events at schools?

  • Classrooms are not public places. Schools control who has access to school property and to students.
  • Schools can decide to invite spectators, including parents or media, to certain school events. This is a school policy issue rather than a FOIP issue. Once parents or other members of the public are invited (other than as volunteers within the school), the event becomes a public event, and anyone in attendance is allowed to take photographs without first obtaining consent.

2. Who can photograph students involved in performing arts or competitive teams?

  • Students involved in performing arts or competitive teams perform or compete in public venues and it is reasonable to expect that photographs may be taken by spectators and by schools. This is a disclosure made for educational purposes.
