FE - Playground Equipment

File:  FE






            When any playground equipment is installed on School Board property the Board assumes ownership of that equipment unless specifically stated otherwise by agreement.  For this reason the maintenance of the playground equipment installed by a school or community group will be the responsibility of the School Board.


            Once installed on School Board property, the principal of the school will have the responsibility to inspect the equipment on a regular basis, not less than monthly, and the authority, in his or her opinion if such equipment is unsafe in any way, to order its repair or removal from the school property.  The principal may also restrict or deny the use of such equipment until such time, in his or her opinion; it is restored to safe condition.
