K.03 Community Use of Buildings, Grounds and Equipment - April 2001 Revision

Note: This policy was revised in November 2012. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current policy.

The public investment in school plants and sites and the general community welfare justify the use of school buildings and grounds by local citizen groups for educational, cultural, civic, and recreational purposes outside of school hours or when such use will not conflict or interfere with the school program. Application for such use of school facilities will be made and approved well in advance of proposed use.

Non-political, non-sectarian, and non-commercial activities may be granted use of school facilities free of charge, at the discretion of the Superintendent. The Superintendent will set up a schedule of charges for the commonly used facilities. Such charges will cover normal use and will assess a reasonable charge to cover utility, maintenance, and replacement costs. As the occasion demands, a reasonable charge will be assessed to cover all other facilities and unusual wear or breakage.

Persons using school equipment will assume responsibility for breakage or loss by signing forms in accordance with procedures developed by the Superintendent.

Public school buildings may not be used for private teaching for which tuition charge is made and paid directly to the instructor.
