706.3 Personal Property Located in School Facilities Owned by the MPSCD
Employees of the District occasionally bring items of personal property to their place of work for their convenience and/or to be used in fulfilling their duties as a district employee.

District employees are permitted to bring and store items of personal property in their place of work, strictly upon the condition that the District, and its agents, employees and contractors, shall not in any way be liable or responsible to the employee, or any other person, for any damage, theft or loss or any other injury to such property, including any damage, loss or injury from any cause whatsoever, including the District’s own negligence.

Further, the District shall have no responsibility for insuring an employee’s property. Employees shall be solely responsible for maintaining their own insurance coverage on any personal property located at a District facility. In the event that the employee’s work location is changed, the employee shall be responsible to move his or her own personal property. If the District or its agents or contractors moves such personal property for the employee as a convenience, any damage, theft, loss, or other injury to such property shall not be the District’s responsibility, and the employee shall bear the full responsibility therefore.
