    Someone wrote to the Administrators Mailring and raised
    the issue of whether the state in which the school is
    located "allows recording without notification of all parties."

    In fact, it definitely does.

    A convenient way to find out whether a state requires
    notification of all parties on a recording is to check the
    website of Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

    Here is the state-by-state Reporter's Recording

    Since the recording is legal, and there are no issues
    involving the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
    (FERPA), the recording of the principal may be disclosed
    to other individuals or the media.
