USE OF SCHOOL FACILITIES


The Board of School Directors of R.S.U. #57 recognizes that the primary purpose for use of

school facilities is to deliver its education programs. R.S.U. #57 also recognizes that schools

have traditionally been community meetings places and centers of local interest. The school

buildings and facilities in the communities of R.S.U. #57 present a substantial investment by the

District and the towns, and for many purposes are the most suitable facilities available; therefore,

the Board of School Directors encourages the use of school facilities for approved school-related

and community activities. Preference for use shall be given in the order listed below:


1. School-sponsored activities: curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular.


2. Meetings and activities of official school-related bodies, including the Board of Directors

and its subcommittees, and other non-profit organizations that exist to support District

schools or students, including parent-teacher organizations, boosters clubs, and teacher

organizations. Such organizations may not sublet to other entities, whether for profit or

not.


3. Meetings and activities operated exclusively by government agencies within the District,

including town governments and town recreation departments. This category does not

include activities operated by profit-making businesses under the nominal sponsorship of

a municipal agency.


4. Employees of RSU #57 who wish to provide services to RSU #57 students in the

employee’s curriculum area of expertise or certification areas. The service must be in

direct line with the districts curriculum. The employee may bring in additional assistance

provided the employee is present in the building for the duration of the activity. The

employee must agree to volunteer their time and cannot receive any financial gain from

the activity, organization, or individual. The service must be provided during normal

operation hours. The employee will be held responsible for insuring that the used space

will be left in the same condition in which it was found. A parental waiver will be

required for each student involved.


5. Meetings and activities conducted specifically for youth that are open to RSU #57

students and that are run by responsible not-for-profit organizations that provide

services, instruction and/or activities for school-aged youth, including Boy Scouts, Girl

Scouts, Campfire, 4H, the Good New Club and similar organizations.


6. Meetings and activities of responsible, not-for-profit civic and social organizations or

agencies, including social service agencies, self-help groups, religious organizations, and

arts organizations.


7. Meetings and activities of all other groups wishing to use the facilities.


Activities and organizations that fit within the above preference categories will not be

denied access based on race, religion, gender, disability, nation or origin, or viewpoint.


The District shall refuse access to any activity or organization that will damage the

reputation of the schools, promotes behaviors that are harmful to children or that in

any way interferes with the operation of the schools in accordance with the District’s

Vision Statement, Guiding Principles and policies.


Activities in categories 1-5 shall be exempt from rental fees. Activities in categories

3-7 will be expected to cover any additional fees that may be incurred. All other

activities shall be charged rental fees in accordance with the prescribed fee schedule.

The Superintendent is responsible for developing administrative regulations, which

provide for timely applications, uses which do not interfere with educational or

extracurricular programs of the public school students, preference to local organizations

and the acceptance of appropriate responsibility and liability. These factors are to further

guide community use.


1. A certificate of insurance shall be required as appropriate to the particular use;

recreation whenever not otherwise scheduled so long as it is used in accordance

with its normal proper use. The use of school equipment without prior approval is

prohibited. However, formal approval to buildings and grounds use will only be

granted to recognize organizations and groups;


6. Any approval of the use of school facilities requires the signing of Facility Use

Agreement setting forth the condition of use;


7. Application for use is to be made through the Principal, with final approval

determined by the Superintendent; and

conduct and care.
