The Board receives regular requests from private and public companies as well as other governmental entities to grant easements on Board property. This rule establishes the procedure that shall be followed when requesting an easement on Board property.
Companies or other governmental entities that desire an easement shall submit an application packet to the Superintendent that includes, but is not limited to, a description of the type of easement sought, a legal description of the parcel for which the easement is sought, architectural drawings and elevations for any structure that would be constructed on the parcel where applicable, and a description of the benefits that the District will receive in consideration for granting said easement. This application shall be submitted at least 45 days prior to the date Board approval is desired or at a mutually agreeable time.
If granted, such easements may create an interest in the property for perpetuity. Therefore, the Board shall give careful consideration to the type of easement sought and whether or not it shall hinder or inhibit the educational program provided on that property or shall present a safety concern for the students who attend school on that property. The Board shall also consider the benefits that the District shall realize if the easement is granted.
