COMMUNITY RELATIONS

Community Use of School Facilities/Generally

The School Board encourages the use of the auditoriums, gymnasiums, other areas and appurtenances of school buildings by reliable community agencies and institutions, and responsible individuals for civic, cultural, recreational, and limited commercial purposes, subject to certain terms and conditions, provided it does not interfere with regular school functions and operations and provided it does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race, color, religion, disability, political affiliation or national origin in the provision of any service.

Charges and fees for the use of these school facilities are designed not to limit or prohibit use, but to protect citizens from expenditures of public money appropriated for classroom instruction and for other purposes.

Regulations governing the use of school facilities are stated in order to protect the public's property and to promote the safety of citizens enjoying the use of such facilities.
