JICB-CARE OF SCHOOL PROPERTY BY STUDENTS
CARE OF SCHOOL PROPERTY BY STUDENTS
Textbooks, other school property, and facilities are available to students for their use. Each student is responsible for loss or damage beyond normal wear. Students will be billed for the replacement costs of such materials.
If reimbursement is not forthcoming within a reasonable time:
A. Damage to school property may be recovered in a civil action to obtain the permitted “double the damage;” or
B. Costs of lost, destroyed or damaged school books and instructional appliances may be recovered by requesting the municipal assessor to include the value in the next municipal tax of the delinquent parent.
The Superintendent shall see that students and parents are notified annually of their responsibilities under this policy, such as by publication in pupil/parent handbooks.
