                2272008_83438_0.png pay any damages to school facilities, furniture, or equipment arising out of its use of
                     school property whether such damage was accidental or deliberate. The cost of damages
                     will be based on the repair or replacement cost, the choice of which is at the Board's
                     discretion.

            facilities or on school property.

        8. All groups must agree to follow the District’s procedures for responding to medical
            emergencies, including calling 9-1-1 whenever a person suffers any sudden, serious and
            unexpected injury that would lead a reasonable person, possessing an average knowledge of
            medicine and health, to believe that the injured person requires urgent medical care. 9-1-1
            shall also be called whenever one of the District’s Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
            is used.
