If the value of the asset exceeds $1000 for an individual item. the Facilities Director will submit the information to BFC for approval and recommended disposal process. Once disposition is approved, the Facilities Director will provide the signed form to the BAS through the Superintendent of Schools and proceed with the property disposal as outlined below.
