The Board of Trustees authorizes the Superintendent or designee to pay the cost of replacing or repairing employee personal property, except cash, which 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.
