Community Use of School Facilities

School facilities are available to the community for education, civic, cultural, and other non-commercial uses consistent with the public interest, when such use does not interfere with the school program or school-sponsored activities.  Such facilities may also be used for the operation of a senior citizen center.  Use of school facilities for school purposes has precedence over all other uses.  Persons on school premises must abide by the District’s conduct rules at all times.

Student and school-related organizations shall be granted the use of school facilities at no cost.  Other organizations granted the use of the facility shall pay fees and costs.  The board of trustees desires to cooperate with other local agencies and community organizations by making available school facilities and certain items of equipment or services when so doing will not be in conflict with the educational program. To this end, all schedules of rental and service charges will be kept as low as possible, considering operation and maintenance costs. If building damage is incurred, users will be expected to reimburse actual costs of repairs. If equipment is damaged, user will be expected to reimburse repair expenses. If equipment is lost, misplaced or damaged beyond repair, users will be expected to reimburse replacement costs. All lease and rental payments will be directed to the school bookkeeper.

The Superintendent shall develop procedures to manage community use of school facilities, which shall be reviewed and approved by the Board.  Use of school facilities requires the building administrator’s approval and is subject to the procedures.

The administration shall approve and schedule the various uses of the school facilities.  A master calendar will be kept in the office for scheduling dates to avoid conflicts during the school year.  Requests for use of the school facilities must be submitted in advance of the event to the building administrator’s office.

Community Use of School Facilities

Boundary County School District No. 101 encourages the use of school facilities by Boundary County groups.  The district will establish rental and deposit fees to cover expenses.  The board of trustees reserves the right to reject any or all applications for the use of school facilities.

  • School facilities shall not be used by any group which, in the opinion of the board of trustees, advocates the overthrow or change of our government by force. 
  • Any advertising by organizations for any event scheduled in a school facility must indicate the local sponsor.

Some restrictions and/or regulations are necessary to protect the schools and school equipment which, in reality, belong to all citizens in the community.  All non-school groups using a school facility must obtain prior approval form the appropriate building administrator.  All rental fees will be collected at the appropriate building and submitted to the school district administration office.  Checks are to be made payable to Boundary County School District No. 101.  Approval for use of facilities will be authorized by each respective building principal and activity director.

Priorities for Use of Facilities:  The following priorities will apply in scheduling use of school facilities.  An attempt will be made to have the various groups desiring to use facilities adjust their schedules to avoid conflicts.  Due to the heavy demand on limited facilities in certain situations, priorities will have to be utilized to determine use of facilities.  No group can be assured of using a facility until a Facility Use Form (Exhibit "A") is properly authorized.  Once authorized, only an official school function or an emergency involving finances, health or safety will justify rescinding such authorized use.  Authorizations may be limited by school district administration discretion.  Organizations have priorities as follows:

  1. Official School Functions
  2. Community Education Functions
  3. Youth Non-profit Organizations
  4. Adult Non-profit Organizations
  5. Commercial Organizations

Fees & Deposits:  The use organization is to provide the school district with proof of insurance in the form of a Certificate of Insurance which must show a minimum limit of $1,000,000 liability coverage per occurrence and must also evidence coverage for this agreement in the form of Blanket Contractual Coverage or name the school district as an Additional Insured.  A copy of the Certificate of Insurance must be attached to this agreement prior to using or occupying the premises.

Waiver of Rental Fees:  Waiver of rental fees requires prior approval from the board of trustees.  Rental fee waiver does not apply if no school personnel are on regular duty during the function, and a custodian must be assigned time beyond his/her normal shift for the function.  The following groups have rental waiver approval as part of this policy:

  1. Community Education groups;
  2. Boundary County Parks and Recreation;
  3. Federal, State & County Agencies for occasional use;
  4. Official school functions (no custodial charge for official school groups).

Waiver of Deposit Fees:  Waiver of deposit fees requires prior approval by District #101 Trustees.  Deposit fees are waived for official school and Community Education functions except for the auditorium.

Deposit:  Boundary County School District No. 101 Board of Trustees shall establish deposit fees for commercial or profit-making groups for each event or function. 

Auditorium Cleaning Deposit: $75.00.  Refund will be made if the auditorium, music room, restrooms, and lobby are thoroughly cleaned after each rehearsal, and final event. Custodial fees will be levied against the deposit, and the user will agree to promptly pay for any damages. 

Rental Fee:  Rental agreement durations may be limited by district administration.

Facility rental fee shall be in accordance with the schedule found in policy 4215(S).  The fees on the schedule represent the rental of a facility while the district custodian is on regular duty.  If no school employee is on regular duty and must be called to duty for a special function, an additional charge of $20.00 per hour will be assessed.

Equipment rentals may be assessed at the discretion of the appropriate supervisor, with the completion of the Equipment Use Form.

Basic Auditorium Rental: The fee shall be in accordance with the schedule found in policy 4215(S).  The fee shall include the service of someone opening and locking the facility since no keys will be issued.  The fee also covers general auditorium upkeep, improvements and maintenance for the auditorium.  Rehearsal time spent in preparation for the event will be included in the above rental fee so long as the event is considered by the board as a community event.

Lighting/Sound BoothThe fee shall be in accordance with the schedule found in policy 4215(S).  Fee for a lighting/sound technician who must be present whenever the booth is open, lights, gels, upkeep of equipment, and the purchase of the needed additional lights and microphones.  One of the school district technicians must be present even if the contracting party brings in their own lighting or sound technician.

Performance grand piano usage: $40.00:  The performance grand is available for one final rehearsal, and the performance.  The fee is assessed to provide for piano tuning and upkeep.  A rehearsal piano is available on the stage at no additional cost.

Other Charges:  May include additional hourly janitorial costs above $75.00 cleaning deposit, at the request of the School District to be paid by the contracting party.

All funds must be payable within five (5) business days of the conclusion of the event.

Regulations for Use of School Facilities:  Upon leaving, check all doors and windows to insure they are locked, and the building is secure.

No street shoes are to be worn while playing in the gym.

Equipment belonging to the district is not to be used or moved to other areas of the building without permission of the proper school authority.

When 200 or more persons will be present, the fire chief or police chief will be notified at least 48 hours before the event.

Any fire, smoke, electrical short, etc. will be immediately reported by phoning 911.
