Our School Board’s Facility Use Policy
The Mattawan Board of Education recognizes that school facilities belong to the school community. Therefore, it is the policy of the Board to encourage the use of the facilities by established local groups and organizations whose purpose and objectives contribute to the school program or the community.
The Board recognizes that the primary purpose of the school’s facilities is to implement the instructional program of the District. The Board also recognizes that there are costs involved in non-school use of facilities and that charges should be made so that tax monies are not used in support of non-school activities. Individuals, including District employees or organizations, will not be permitted to rent school facilities for profit-making activities unless scheduled through the Facilities Coordinator.
The Board of Education and Administration have developed a new fee schedule and regulations governing the use and rental of school facilities to protect the regular instructional program, those who use the facilities and the taxpayers who have provided the facilities. The regulations define those groups permitted to use school facilities, as well as the specific limitations and prohibited activities in school facilities. No person or organization shall be granted permission to use school facilities who has not agreed, in writing, to be bound by the regulations of the District.
Additional information may be found under Administrative Guideline 7000 (Property) and specifically 7510A, 7510B, and 7510C.
How do I check for availability?
