Policy 801.09

Use of Private Vehicles on School Business

The board discourages the use of private vehicles for district business. Staff will use district-owned vehicles whenever possible and should schedule activities and transportation needs far enough in advance to avoid any non-emergency use of private vehicles.

The superintendent will develop regulations for staff use of private vehicles that will safeguard the district, its employees and students in matters of safety, insurance and liability.

No staff member will use a private vehicle for district business without approval in accordance with established district procedures. Authorization to use a private vehicle must be obtained before actual use of the vehicle. School district administrators and teachers assigned to multiple buildings shall be granted standing authority to use their private vehicles for routine school-related business and/or to travel between district facilities. Staff members who are authorized to use a private vehicle on district business will be reimbursed in an amount established by the board.
