THE GOVERNING BOARD BELIEVES THAT SCHOOL FACILITIES AND GROUNDS ARE A VITAL COMMUNITY RESOURCE WHICH SHOULD BE USED TO FOSTER COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT. THEREFORE, THE BOARD AUTHORIZES THE USE OF SCHOOL FACILITIES BY DISTRICT RESIDENTS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS FOR PURPOSES SPECIFIED IN THE CIVIC CENTER ACT, TO THE EXTENT THAT SUCH USE DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES OR OTHER SCHOOL-RELATED USES.
Pursuant to Board Policy 1330, school facilities may be used by community groups provided for in the Civic Center Act when such use does not interfere with school activities.
At least 10 days in advance, groups must complete a “Permit for Use of School Facilities” application and submit it to the site administrator where the activity is to take place. The form must be complete with the name and phone number of the person/organization responsible for the activity.
It is the site administrator’s responsibility to ensure the request meets district guidelines and determine if the facility is available. The site administrator will sign the form and forward it to the District Business Office. The Business Office will contact the person/organization to discuss insurance requirements and related costs, if necessary.
If the Use Permit covers times that the facility is not normally open, the rates listed below will be assessed and billed to the user. Activities/groups that benefit District students may use facilities without charge as long as the District does not incur any additional costs. If additional costs occur, the District will invoice the group for costs based on the rates listed below.
Pursuant to Government Code Section 66006, school districts must maintain a separate capital facilities account. This account must be used for Developer Fees and must be made available to the public within 180 days after the last day of each fiscal year.
Residential School/Developer Fees: $3.79 per square foot
Commercial School/Developer Fees: $.61 per square foot
