LEASE, SALE OR DISPOSAL OF SCHOOL DISTRICT PROPERTY
Decisions regarding the lease, sale, or disposal of school district property shall be made by a two-thirds vote of the board in consultation with the Superintendent.† In making its decision the board will consider the needs of the education program and the efficient use of public funds.
Disposition of district property may occur by any method chosen by the board such as auction, private or public sale, trade, or bid process with care to provide financial accountability for the districtís resources.† Such dispositions shall be publicized by newspaper advertisement, website or newsletter announcement, posting on bulletin boards or other means of notifying district residents. †Real estate shall be sold by a formal bid process.
If public sales fail to produce any interested buyers or bidders, remaining unsold materials may then, at the superintendentís discretion, be disposed of as scrap or junk or be donated to appropriate charitable or educational agencies.† Discarded items shall not be claimed by employees except by prior approval of the administration.
If needed, one or more qualified individuals may be employed to prepare an appraisal of the property.
In the case of the razing of a school district facility the board will advertise and take bids for the purpose of awarding the contract for the project.
The superintendent shall be responsible for coordinating the action necessary for the board to accomplish the lease, sale, or disposal of school district property.† It shall also be the responsibility of the superintendent to make a recommendation to the board regarding the use of school district real property not being utilized for the education program.
