Cost recovery program

Refining the cost recovery program in continuing to serve community needs

While APS welcomes the community to use the schools, M&O has to be responsible, not cavalier, of that use. Operation at night and weekends is not free. All operational costs (custodial, supplies, heating, cooling, electricity, and water) escalate when schools are used outside of daily school hours, but the allocated operation funds remain the same. The District implemented, and regularly fine-tunes, a cost recovery program that strategizes conservation and scheduling usage. Rental fees are considerably less (75-80%) than equivalent commercial space, and non-profit entities may qualify for a further discount, depending on the purpose.
