The Governing Board recognizes that district facilities are a community resource whose primary purpose is to be used for school programs and activities. The Board authorizes the use of school facilities by community groups for purposes provided for in the Civic Center Act when such use does not interfere with school activities.
All school-related activities (clubs, class events etc.) shall be given priority in the use of facilities under the Civic Center Act. Thereafter, the use of facilities shall be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Board authorizes the use of school facilities without charge by nonprofit organizations, clubs or associations organized to promote youth and school activities. These groups include, but are not limited to Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Camp Fire, Inc., parent-teacher associations, and school-community advisory councils. The Board shall grant the use of school facilities without charge to school-related organizations whose activities are directly related to or for the benefit of district schools. The Board believes that the use of school facilities by other groups should not result in costs to the district. Other groups requesting the use of school facilities under the Civic Center Act shall be charged at least direct costs.
Fair Rental Value
Groups shall be charged fair rental value when using school facilities or grounds for entertainment or meetings where admission is charged or contributions solicited and net receipts are not to be expended for charitable purposes or for the welfare of the district's students. (Education Code 38134)
