            The school division shall apply trade-in allowances on equipment to be replaced against the purchase cost of the new equipment whenever possible.


            The school division will dispose of equipment and furniture having no trade-in value by  auction to the public.  A list of items to be auctioned will be provided to the School Board.  If beneficial to Rockingham County Public Schools, an item may be sold outside of the auction by sealed bid.

            If reasonable attempts through the bidding or direct sales process to dispose of the items are unsuccessful, then the superintendent is authorized to arrange for their disposal.  


            Obsolete educational technology hardware and software that is being replaced pursuant to Va. Code ¤ 22.1-199.1(B)(4) may be donated to other school divisions, to students, as provided in Board of Education guidelines, to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, and to preschool programs in the Commonwealth.
