As a service to the community and in accordance with state law, the Board of Education may allow the use of public school facilities by individuals, groups and associations for educational, recreational, social, civic, philanthropic and other similar purposes as the Board deems are for the best interests of the community.
Permission to use school facilities will be granted to community organizations and residents by the superintendent, or his or her designee, in keeping with the policies, rules and procedures adopted by the Board. The district allows memorial services without the presence of the deceased. However, such use will not interfere in any way with the regular programs and activities of the school district.
A nominal rental fee to cover operational costs (heat, lights, etc.) and custodial service will be charged in accordance with a schedule recommended by the superintendent and approved by the Board. The fee will not be charged to any school-related organization. The Board may consider waiving the fee for special public programs. Users shall agree in writing to pay for any damages relating to use of district facilities and agree to pay for any related litigation.
The use of playgrounds and buildings during the summer months for recreational purposes shall be governed by the superintendent according to the Board policies, rules and procedures.
Where possible, a certificate of insurance or hold-harmless agreement shall be provided by the persons or organizations using school facilities.
The District allows our buildings, auditorium and stadium to be used by the public. Information on using or renting any of our facilities may be found in the Community Use of School Facilities handbook.
