No item of Board-owned equipment shall be loaned for nondistrict school use off school property. If equipment is required for the use of those granted permission to use District facilities, it may be loaned in accordance with School Board Policy 7510 and administrative procedures. Use agreements may include the use of District equipment.
The District may lend specific items of equipment on the written request of the user and approval granted by the Superintendent.
The user of Board-owned equipment shall be fully liable for any damage or loss occurring to the equipment during the period of its use, and shall be responsible for its safe return. The use of Board-owned equipment off school property is subject to the same rules and conditions of use that are in effect when the equipment is used on school property.
District equipment may be removed from District property by students or staff members only when such equipment is necessary to accomplish tasks arising from their school or job responsibilities. The consent of the Superintendent is required for such removal.
Individuals authorized to use Board-owned equipment off school property may not allow anyone else to use the equipment (e.g., spouses, children, relatives, friends, etc., may not use Board-owned equipment, which is sanctioned for use by a specific person).
A Board employee may use Board-owned technology devices for school use off of school property. Technology devices owned by the Board may contain personally identifiable information about District students and/or staff. Federal and State laws prohibiting disclosure of such personally identifiable information apply to electronic records stored on technology devices. Board employees are advised to exercise caution, and utilize encryption technologies, when transferring personally identifiable information onto disks, flash drives, and other technology devices. A Board employee who loses or misuses student or staff personally identifiable information will be subject to disciplinary action as determined by the Board.
Use of Board equipment or facilities by staff or students will be in accordance with the Superintendent's administrative procedures.
Removal of Board equipment from District property for personal use is prohibited by staff or students.
