Community Use of School Facilities



The Board believes that the public schools are an integral part of the community. Therefore, the Board encourages the public use of school facilities.

Authorization by the Superintendent and Building Principal, or Athletic Director of the use of school facilities shall not be considered as an endorsement or approval of the activity, group or organization, nor the purposes it represents. No application for use of school facilities shall be denied on grounds of disagreement with the philosophy or views of the applicant. However, the Board or the Superintendent may deny such use when it appears to be not in the public interest.

The Superintendent, Building Principal, or Athletic Director shall permit the use of facilities and charge for them in accordance with the separate rules and regulations governing facility use.
