Cf:  DFM





Merchandise and equipment no longer usable for the purpose for which it was acquired or built, shall be declared surplus by the head of the department to which the merchandise or equipment has been assigned.  The School Board will then call for bids for the sale of such merchandise or equipment and said bids will be opened publicly and disposed of in a prudent, businesslike manner.  The West Carroll Parish School Board shall reserve the right to accept or reject any and all bids.  The West Carroll Parish School Board may at its discretion conduct a public inventory sale.


The sale of surplus merchandise or equipment shall be final, on an "as is" or "where is" basis and will carry no warranties whatsoever.




Surplus buses and other vehicles shall be sold to the general public by sealed bids made to the West Carroll Parish School Board.  Bids shall be opened at a regular meeting of the School Board or at the time and place stated in the advertisement.  The West Carroll Parish School Board reserves the right to trade in buses.


Any buses and other vehicles offered for bid, but not sold, may be disposed of by the Supervisor of Transportation with the written approval of the Superintendent or designee.




When the School Board determines that an individual computing device used by a student or students has reached the end of its typical life cycle, is no longer needed for school purposes, and will be removed from classroom use, and that the best interest of the public school system would be served by the private sale of such device due to the cost of auctioning the device or recycling it or due to other factors, the School Board may sell the device to a student enrolled in a school in the school system or to the parent, tutor, or legal guardian of such a student.


The sale price for the device shall be reasonably equivalent to the value of the device, taking into consideration its typical life cycle, current condition, and costs of other methods of alienation or disposal.


All such sales shall be in accordance with School Board policies, and sale prices shall be approved by appropriate school system administrative personnel prior to sale.  Such sales shall apply only to individual computing devices used for classwork by students and shall not apply to other computer equipment or related equipment such as routers, switches, or servers.
