John Glenn School Corporation
Bylaws & Policies


The Board requires the Superintendent to review the property of the Corporation periodically and to dispose of that material and equipment which is no longer usable in accordance with the terms of this policy.



Instructional Material


The Corporation shall review instructional materials (i.e. textbooks, library books, manuals, support materials, etc.) periodically to determine the relevance of such materials to the present world and current instructional programs. The following criteria will be used to review instructional materials for redistribution and possible disposal:



concepts or content that do not support the current goals of the curriculum



information that may not be current



worn beyond salvage





The Corporation shall inspect the equipment used in the instructional program periodically, to determine the condition and usability of such equipment in the current educational program. Should the equipment be deemed no longer serviceable or usable, the following criteria will be used to determine possible disposal:



repair parts for the equipment no longer readily available



repair records indicate equipment has no usable life remaining



obsolete and no longer contributing to the educational program



some potential for sale at a school auction



creates a safety or environmental hazard





The Corporation shall dispose of textbooks in accordance with the procedures described by statute.


Before the Corporation mutilates or otherwise destroys a textbook, it shall provide at no cost and subject to availability one (1) copy of each textbook that is no longer scheduled for use in the School Corporation to:



the parent of each child who is enrolled in a corporation school and who wishes to receive a copy of the textbook; and



if any textbooks remain after such distribution to parents, to any resident who wishes to receive a copy.


If any textbook remain after such distribution, each school shall store the remainder for at least three (3) months, before disposing of them. A school may sell any of the undistributed texts to another school corporation at any time during the period of storage.





The Superintendent is authorized to dispose of obsolete instructional and other property by selling it to the highest bidder, by donation to appropriate parties, or by proper waste disposal in accordance with I.C. 36-1-11-6.


When original or replacement equipment acquired under a Federal award is no longer needed for the original project or program or for other activities currently or previously supported by a Federal awarding agency, the Corporation shall request disposition instructions from the Federal awarding agency if required by the terms and conditions of the Federal award. Disposition of the equipment will be made in accordance with disposition instructions of the Federal awarding agency.


Items of equipment with a current per unit fair market value of $5,000 or less may be retained, sold or otherwise disposed of with no further obligation to the Federal awarding agency.


Except as provided in 200.312 Federally-owned and exempt property, paragraph (b), or if the Federal awarding agency fails to provide requested disposition instructions within 120 days, items of equipment with a current per-unit fair-market value in excess of $5,000 may be retained by the non-Federal entity or sold. The Federal awarding agency is entitled to an amount calculated by multiplying the current market value or proceeds from sale by the Federal awarding agency's percentage of participation in the cost of the original purchase. If the equipment is sold, the Federal awarding agency may permit the non-Federal entity to deduct and retain from the Federal share $500 or ten percent (10%) of the proceeds, whichever is less, for its selling and handling expenses.


The Corporation may transfer title to the property to the Federal Government or to an eligible third party provided that, in such cases, the Corporation shall be entitled to compensation for its attributable percentage of the current fair market value of the property.
