B-07 Board Vehicles

Date May 2023
Review May 2028

The District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) is committed to safety and responsibility. This policy requires all DSBN employees who operate DSBN vehicles do so in a safe and lawful manner. The DSBN also requires that all DSBN vehicles be managed responsibly throughout the vehicle’s life cycle (acquisition, operation, maintenance, and disposal).

DSBN vehicles refer to any motorized vehicle such as car, truck or van that is owned or leased by the DSBN expressly for the purpose of carrying out DSBN business. All DSBN employees who are provided with a DSBN vehicle are expected to use the vehicle solely for the purposes of conducting DSBN business.

On an annual basis, employees who have been given use of a DSBN vehicle will be required to acknowledge two declaration statements:

  • Driving a DSBN vehicle is a privilege.
  • The DSBN reserves the right to deny or revoke the driving privileges of any employee in the event that the employee does not meet the requirements of this procedure.

DSBN employees are expected to take all steps necessary to avoid endangering themselves and others while operating DSBN vehicles. Any staff member who is in violation of DSBN safety expectations may be subject to disciplinary action by the DSBN up to and including termination.

Authority for the acquisition or disposal of DSBN owned vehicles is administered under the direction of the Superintendent of Business Services and Treasurer.
