The School Board of Miami-Dade County
Bylaws & Policies
Unless a specific policy has been amended and the date the policy was revised is noted at the bottom of that policy, the Bylaws and Policies of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools were adopted on May 11, 2011 and were in effect beginning July 1, 2011.


School Board-owned equipment may be loaned when the use does not infringe on the original and necessary purpose of the equipment or interfere with the educational program of the District.

Off-campus use of Board-owned equipment by staff or students must be approved in advance by the accountable officer of the location or his/her designee. The form available for recording such movements and their approval is the "Outgoing Controlled Equipment" Form 1670. If equipment is being used off campus for less than one (1) week use, the "Approval For Off-Campus Use of School Property" form 2380 shall be submitted.

The user of Board-owned equipment shall be fully liable for any damage or loss occurring to the equipment during the period of its use, and shall be responsible for its safe return. The use of Board-owned equipment off school property is subject to the same rules and conditions of use that are in effect when the equipment is used on school property. Employees who misuse Board-owned equipment will be subject to disciplinary action as determined by the Board.

Removal of Board equipment from District property for personal use is prohibited by staff or students.

The Office of the Controller issues a Manual of Property Control Procedures that describes the processes that implement this policy.
