The board shall direct the Superintendent of Schools to review periodically all district property and shall authorize the disposition by sale, licensing, rental or donation of any property not required for school purposes.

The business administrator shall develop rules for the disposition of property that ensure that all sales are conducted in a fair and open manner consistent with the public interest, and in compliance with law.

The business administrator shall conduct an ongoing review of all property to determine those items which have ceased to be suitable or required for the educational program. He/she may be aided by the administrative team or other staff members.

Any district property designated for donation or unsold after such offer may be offered without cost to charitable or nonprofit organizations having a use for such property.

Supplies and equipment for specific programs, purchased with funds granted by the state and federal government, shall be disposed of in strict accordance with applicable law and regulations.
