Can an employee take a District-owned item that is considered trash or is no longer needed by the District?
No. Items to be disposed of cannot be taken for personal use even if considered trash (*). This includes equipment, supplies, furniture, etc. District-owned items that are no longer needed will be staged at a central location at each school for later determination of relocation or disposal. However, if items are offered for sale, employees have the same opportunity as the public to purchase those items.
* Per District Policy DN and Model Contract Rules, items disposed of by sale or trash cannot be taken for personal use even if considered trash.
