    Operational and Instructional supplies, when purchased in bulk by schools and departments, are shipped to the school district’s Support Services Complex Building A for cost savings and the best possible prices. When delivered to this location, warehouse personnel will verify the order and notify the requesting department or office of receipt of the shipment. Once given authorization, the warehouse will ship to locations within the district. Some orders may be delivered on regular district mail days, while others may come on other days.

Any DPSCD personnel with picture identification can visit the Warehouse to view and secure surplus equipment for their school or department. It will be delivered by the Warehouse staff. To schedule a visit, fill out the Warehouse Request Form. 


    Any surplus equipment that is determined to no longer be useful for the school district is sold at auction. These auctions are advertised by the procurement department and are conducted annually.

    All auctions will be conducted online with preview dates established at the warehouse and/or school with surplus items.
