Facility Rental

The Board of Education recognizes the facilities of the district are both school and community resources and allows the use of school buildings and school grounds at reasonable times and rates to recognized community organizations whose activities are of general interest to the community and whose use of the school facility is for a community purpose.  Use of any school facility or school grounds, however, shall not interfere with daily school use of any school-sponsored activity.  Usage is subject to limited access and availability.  School activities shall have first priority for facility use.  No group or organization shall be allowed to use school facilities for private profit-making purposes.  School-related organizations, such as parent-teacher associations, shall have priority over non-school related organizations.
