The Board of Education encourages the greatest possible use of school buildings and grounds for community activities. All such use should pertain to the general welfare of the school and/or community, in compliance with Education Law. Any such use, however, shall not be deemed an endorsement of the activity or purpose for which the facilities are used.
The school buildings and grounds are maintained for the education and recreation of students in the district, and no use shall be made of the buildings or grounds while school is in session. All uses of school buildings and grounds shall be consistent with Section 414 of the Education Law.
Groups wishing to use the school facilities must secure written permission from the Superintendent or his/her designee and abide by the rules and regulations established for such use (see 1500-R). Organizations which have secured approval to use the district’s facilities and/or grounds will pay usage fees based on rates adopted by the Board of Education.
