Procedure for Accepting Donated Computer Equipment
The premise for this procedure is from BP 3290(a), which states in part:
To be acceptable, a gift must satisfy the following criteria:
- Be manageable within existing staff resources;
- Be self-sustaining or not entail undesirable or hidden costs, nor negatively impact the district's fiscal integrity;
- Have a purpose consistent with those of the district;
- Meet regular district criteria
- Review minimum hardware specifications
- Complete Receipt for Donation form (obtained from Office Managers or X164)
- Send completed form to Kathy Shirley in Technology Services
- If the equipment meets the accepted criteria, the form will be forwarded to Business Services for inclusion on the next Board Consent Agenda. We will notify you either way.
- Board action/approval
- School site is notified of approval; equipment may be processed.
