830.1 RULE- Guidelines for Use of School Facilities
Individuals or groups requesting to use facilities must complete an application for Use of School Facilities.
The Board reserves the right to grant and to cancel any reservation should the need arise.
Advance payment of rental fees may be required.
The Board may request proof of insurance.
Organizations and individuals using the district facilities will be held responsible for costs of cleanup or repair of damages resulting from use of a school facility.
School facilities may not be used for the following reasons:
Promulgating any theory, doctrine or group subversive to the law of the United States or any subdivision thereof advocating governmental changes by violence or subterfuge.
Any activity that violates the cannons of good morals.
Use that is in conflict with a school activity.
Raffles, lotteries and games of chance.
Private activities such as weddings, showers or private graduation parties.
School District sponsored activities shall have scheduling priority provided that the request is made within a reasonable period of time before the activity is to be held.
Groups and organizations requesting the use of the school facilities will be classified into four (4) categories and charged according to the fee schedule developed by the administration and approved by the school board. Listed below are the categories:
Rental fees will not be charged to any school affiliated organization whose purpose is improving instruction and pupil welfare.
Community, civic, recreational or youth and adult groups shall be granted free use of the buildings when used during the week (Monday through Friday) and during regular hours for which custodians are regularly scheduled. Such organizations as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Brownies, 4-H Lions, Homemaker Clubs and similar community groups will be in this classification. In order to constitute a community group, 75 percent or more of the participants must reside within the Plymouth Joint School District. A building rental fee will be charged when they desire to use the facilities for fund raising activities, which will be deposited to their treasury and used for purposes other than benefiting the school district or school district residents. This category will be charged only actual costs for required overtime custodial services or food service workers.
Non-affiliated or commercial users are non-Plymouth Joint School District residents, groups, private enterprises and churches. This fee is based on operation and outlay costs.
Long-term contracts will be written for groups who use the facilities on a consistent and long term (i.e., in excess of one year, basis or lease unused space in school district facilities). Such contracts will be presented to the Board.
