Board Policies – Section K – General Public Relations
KGA – Use of District Personal Property and Equipment
Requests for use of district equipment by individuals or outside organizations shall be submitted to the superintendent or designee. Any request shall be granted or denied pursuant to guidelines for using equipment developed by the administrator and approved by the board. The superintendent or designee may establish a deposit or requirement for the purchase of insurance for use of school equipment before it is removed from the school grounds or other district property. The deposit will be paid to the district and will be refunded when the equipment is returned in working order.
Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Property or Equipment
No request for use of school equipment shall be granted until the requestor executes a use agreement (see form KG) specifying such person will agree to pay the district fair market value for any equipment that has been lost, stolen, or has suffered irreparable damage while in the requestor’s possession. For the purposes of this policy, “irreparable damage” shall include any damage severe enough that the cost to repair such equipment would be more than the fair market value of the equipment. If school equipment is returned damaged beyond normal wear and tear of acceptable use, the requestor shall be responsible for the cost to repair such equipment. The district may also require the purchase of insurance.
No district equipment shall be used by staff for personal reasons at school or away from its designated station without the prior approval of the building principal or designee.
