Policy Details Page
The purpose of this policy is to provide direction for the management of school district real property currently not being used by the District.
Real property is considered to be in use when it directly houses or supports an existing education program or support activity of the School District. All other property is considered to be not in use. Real property not in use which is or may be needed for a definable future use for public education is reserve property.
All property which is not in use and is not needed for a definable future use is surplus property.
The District will manage its real property with the framework of existing law, buying, selling, leasing, holding, and otherwise managing its real property in the furtherance of the following objectives:
1. Reserve property shall be managed to preserve its use for future School District requirements. Pending return of the property to use by the School District, reserve property shall be managed considering the potential financial return to the District as compared to the potential benefit to the community from a community use.
2. Surplus property shall be managed to maximize benefit to the District.
In all management of real property, efforts shall be made to avoid harming the School District’s education program.
