The lease payments shall not exceed the District’s actual costs for maintenance,
                       operation, and custodial services for the leased classrooms.  (Ed. Code § 17465(f)(2).)  If
                       more than one school district offers to lease classrooms, the leasing district may elect to
                       negotiate either individually or jointly with the interested districts.  (Ed. Code
                       § 17465(f)(3).)

                   If the parties are unable to arrive at a mutually satisfactory lease within the 60-day period,
                   the District may offer the property to other parties.  (Ed. Code § 17465(g).)

               E.  Offers to Interested Charter Schools No Longer Required
                   For a period of time prior to July 1, 2016, the governing board of a school district seeking to
                   sell or lease surplus real property was required to offer that property for sale or lease to
                   interested charter schools if certain criteria were met.  This requirement sunset on July 1,
                   2016, and is no longer applicable.  (Ed. Code, § 17457.5.)

               V. Notification of Local City or County Planning Agency Prior to Sale
                   If the local city or county planning agency has adopted a general plan or part thereof which
                   affects or includes the area where the property is located, the District must notify the agency
                   in writing before the District may sell the property.  The notification must identify the
                   property’s location, and the purpose and extent of the proposed sale.  (Govt. Code
                   § 65402(a), (c).)

                    The local planning agency must report back to the District within 40 days, indicating whether
                   the proposed sale is in conformity with the general plan.  If the agency fails to respond within
                   40 days, it is conclusively deemed a finding that the proposed sale is in conformity with the
                   general plan or part thereof.  (Govt. Code § 65402(c).)

                   Even if the planning agency disapproves of the location, purpose or extent of the property
                   sale, the District may overrule such disapproval.  (Govt. Code § 65402(c).)

               VI. Board Action Declaring Intention to Sell or Lease the Property
                   If the property remains unsold or unleased after the foregoing steps, the Board must declare
                   its intention in a regular meeting to sell or lease the property prior to putting the property up
                   to competitive bid.  To do so, it should adopt a resolution taking each of the following

                      Consider the 7-11 Committee’s recommendations.  (Ed. Code § 17387, et seq.)

                      Describe the property proposed to be sold or leased in such a manner as to identify it.
                       (Ed. Code § 17466.)

                      Specify the minimum price and the terms upon which the property will be sold or leased.
                       (Ed. Code § 17466.)
