EDC: Authorized Use of School-Owned Materials

E: Support Services

Use by the Public 

Many requests come from people of the community who want to borrow various items of furniture, equipment, and instructional apparatus.  As a result of long experience, it has been deemed best that all school furniture, fixtures, equipment, and all the instructional apparatus be used only for school purposes by school personnel on school premises.  School machinery, such as typewriters, sewing machines, laundry equipment, shop tools, lawn mowers, etc., are not for personal use by anyone.  Community groups may approach the Secretary-Treasurer to request use of equipment by special arrangement. 

Use of projection equipment 

The Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) has adopted the following policy regarding the rental and use of equipment, such as movie, film strip, and opaque projectors and public address systems, etc. 

  1. Permission to use equipment away from school premises may be granted upon request by responsible parties or organizations. 
  2. Such permission depends upon the availability of a school-trained operator who must accompany and operate the equipment. 

Use by Staff and Students 

The Board will permit school equipment to be loaned to staff members when such use is directly or peripherally related to their employment and to students when the equipment is to be used in connection with their studies or extracurricular activities.  Proper controls will be established to assure the lender's responsibility for, and return of, all such equipment.
