EMPLOYEE PROPERTY REIMBURSEMENT

The Governing Board authorizes the Superintendent or designee to pay the cost of replacing or repairing employee personal property, except cash, that has been stolen or intentionally destroyed or damaged while being used for work-related purposes.

No reimbursement shall be made for accidental damage or for any loss due to lack of personal supervision or failure to keep property in a secured area.

The maximum payment shall be the amount specified by the District’s insurance carrier for such loss or the amount specified in the applicable collective bargaining agreement, whichever is less.

Reimbursement for personal items used for work-related purposes shall be made only if: (Education Code 35213)

  1. use of the personal property was approved by the principal, site supervisor or designee before the property was brought to school or District premises;
  2. at that time, the employee and District representative agreed on the value of the property.

Replacement of Eye Glasses

If eye glasses are damaged while in the line of duty, the District will reimburse the employee for the replacement of the eye glasses up to fifty dollars ($50) maximum for any single incident. The employee must first exhaust his/her eye care benefit. The burden of proof shall be upon the employee and final approval shall rest with the District Superintendent.
