The Superintendent will monitor fixed assets as described in GASB 34.

Fixed assets that are leased/purchased and assets which are jointly owned shall be identified and recorded in the fixed asset system.

The Superintendent of Schools shall develop administrative guidelines to ensure proper purchase, transfer, and disposal of fixed assets as defined in this policy.
