Any firm or person renting or using school land shall provide the Board of Education with a “Save Harmless” clause within the rental agreement created by the District’s legal counsel and approved by the Jordan-Elbridge Board of Education.

Sale and Disposal of School District Property (including Real Property)   

No school property, including buildings or land shall be sold without prior approval of the Board.  The net proceeds from the sale of school property shall be deposited in the General Fund.

Disposal of District Personal Property

School District equipment that is obsolete, surplus, or unusable by the District shall be disposed of in such a manner that is advantageous to the District.

The Superintendent will be responsible for selling the equipment in such a way so as to maximize the net proceeds of sale which may include a bona fide public sale preceded by adequate public notices.  If it is determined that reasonable attempts to dispose of the equipment have been made and such attempts have not produced an adequate return, the Superintendent or their designee may dispose of the equipment in any manner which they deem appropriate.


Textbooks may lose their value to the educational program because of changes in the curriculum or they contain outdated material and/or are in poor condition. If textbooks are not longer useful or usable, the procedures for disposal shall adhere to the following order of preference:

a)    Sale of textbooks. If reasonable attempts to dispose of surplus textbooks fail to produce monetary return to the School District
b)    Donation to charitable organizations
c)    Disposal as trash
