               The following is an executive summary of the process and statutory time requirements
               throughout the process; a more detailed discussion follows.

               >  First identify the surplus real property and convene a committee to advise the governing
                   board in the development of a District wide policy on the use or disposition of surplus real
                   property. (Ed. Code §§ 17387, et seq.)  Until July 1, 2024, such a committee is optional for
                   property that has not been used, or was not constructed to be used, as a school or early
                   education facility.  (Ed. Code §§ 17391(c) & 17463.7(e)(1).)

               >  Declare intent to sell or lease the property to general public:  To place the property on the
                   market, the Board must consider the committee’s recommendation that the property be
                   declared surplus and declare its intent to dispose of the property in a resolution.  (Ed. Code
                   § 17466.)

               >  Offers required by the Naylor Act (Ed. Code § 17485, et seq.):  The Naylor Act only applies to
                   real property that has been used entirely or partially for school playgrounds, playing fields, or
                   other outdoor recreational uses and open-space land particularly suited for recreational
                   purposes.  If the Naylor Act does apply, the District must offer to negotiate to sell or lease
                   the property to certain entities, usually for a below-market rate. The District may seek a
                   waiver of the Naylor Act.  (Ed. Code § 33050.)  The District must allow Naylor Act entities
                   sixty days to respond to the offer.  (Ed. Code § 17489(c).)

               >  Selling or leasing with option to purchase (Ed. Code § 17464 and Gov. Code § 54220):

                   >  The property must be offered to a group of designated entities for park and recreational
                       purposes pursuant to Government Code sections 54220, et seq.  (Ed. Code § 17464(b).)
                       These entities must be allowed sixty days after receiving notice to respond and are also
                       entitled to a negotiation period of ninety days after giving notice to the District of their
                       interest in the property.  This requirement cannot be waived.

                   >  The property must also be offered to an additional group of designated public entities.
                       This group must also be notified that it has sixty days to make offers, but is not entitled to
                       an additional negotiation period.

                   >  Offers required under the Education and Government Codes may be made
                       simultaneously to all of the applicable entities.  (Ed. Code § 17463.7(e)(2).)

               >  Lease (with no option to purchase):  No additional notices, beyond the requisite offers to
                   Naylor Act entities, are expressly required.  The District may proceed to lease the property to
                   the highest responsible bidder pursuant to Education Code sections 17466, et seq.  (Note:
