Facilities Use

Facility Use Overview 

The Board supports the community education concept, which encourages the use of school district facilities by community members for education, recreation and service activities.  The Board believes that district educational and extra-curricular programs shall have priority over other community uses, and has directed the administration to develop regulations governing building and facility use by community user groups and/or individuals.  The Board reserves the right to assess fees for community use of district facilities.  Depending on the type of activity, proof of liability insurance may be required.

Full language for the district policy and regulations for “Community Use of District Facilities” can be read under Policy KG and KG-AR.  See links below.
