For additional information, please contact Dawn Davis at (336) 370-2393 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The use of school facilities by community organizations is not endorsed by the District. Officially sanctioned, school-related activities will be given priority in the scheduling of facility use. All other scheduling of facility use will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The District reserves the right to:
- Assess facility-use fees
- Refuse approval
- Cancel approved use of a school facility
Facility use will be denied if an organization intends to use facilities to engage in conduct contrary to:
- Federal law
- State law
- Local law
When school facilities are rented by a community organization, a District employee must be present at all times. Keys to school facilities will not be issued to community organizations. Buildings must be opened, attended and closed by an authorized employee of the District. The cost of any overtime will be charged to the organization using the facility.
The District may enter into Shared-Use Agreements with community organizations when the Agreement will be beneficial to the District. The District will negotiate these Agreements on an individual basis.
The school site principal is not authorized to negotiate at the school level for use of the property. All requests for Shared-Use Agreements must be referred to the Building Services Department. The school principal’s input will be sought during the initial stages of development.
COVID-19 RESTARTING FACILITY-USE / SHARED-USE
In the interest of keeping students, families and the community safe and healthy, GCS will continue to delay facility-use and shared-use. The district made this decision after assessing current public health data and trends concerning COVID-19 in Guilford County.
