The Board of Trustees recognizes that district facilities and grounds are a community resource and authorizes their use 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 shall be given priority in the use of facilities and grounds under the Civic Center Act. Thereafter, the use shall be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Superintendent or designee shall maintain procedures and regulations for the use of school facilities and grounds that: (Education Code 38133)
- Aid, encourage, and assist groups desiring to use school facilities for approved activities
- Preserve order in school buildings and on school grounds and protect school facilities, designating a person to supervise this task, if necessary
- Ensure that the use of school facilities or grounds is not inconsistent with their use for school purposes and does not interfere with the regular conduct of school work
Fees: The Board believes that the use of school facilities or grounds should not result in costs to the district. The Board shall charge according to facility use fee schedule to all groups granted facility use under the Civic Center Act. 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.
