Production crews that want to film at Los Angeles Unified School District properties will face stricter rules for the type of content that may be filmed.
NBC4 Los Angeles reports that a revised policy could impose fines on crews who film questionable content that is not approved by the district in advance.
The district shut down all commercial filming at schools earlier this month while its inspector general review filming protocol. That decision came after an NBC4 investigation uncovered filming of questionable material on school grounds. One example that has drawn significant attention was a porn film titled "Revenge of the Petites," which was partially filmed in 2011 at Alexander Hamilton High School in Los Angeles.
Film companies are not allowed to "disrupt any school instructional program," according to the district's filming policy, but records show school officials were willing to make exceptions in exchange for additional money.
Under the revised policy, which has not yet been finalized, companies will be required to provide more detail about what they are filming, and film monitors will be on site of productions to make sure scenes are appropriate. If film crews mislead the district about what is being filmed, they may face a fine.
The Los Angeles district says it has collected about $10 million in the last five years for productions that have used school facilities.
