6161.2 – Instruction – Instructional Services – Damaged or Lost Instructional Materals

Policy – x
Regulation –
Exhibit –

Adopted – 3/5/1998
Revised –
The Governing Board recognizes that instructional materials are an expensive resource. The Superintendent or designee may establish procedures in accor-dance with law to protect instructional materials from damage or loss.

Instructional materials provided for use by students remain the property of the district. Students are responsible for returning borrowed materials in good condition, with no more wear and tear than usually results from normal use.

When materials are lost or so damaged that they are no longer usable, the student shall be responsible for reparation equal to the current replacement cost of the materials. When materials are damaged but still usable, the Superintendent or designee shall determine a lesser charge.

If it can be demonstrated to the Principal s satisfaction that the student has taken all reasonable precautions to safeguard instructional materials issued to him/her, the Principal may excuse the student/parent/guardian from payment of repara-tion.

If reparation is not excused and not paid by the student or parent/ guardian, the district may initiate due process procedures to withhold the student’s grades, diploma and transcripts.
