Community Use of Schools

Subject to the availability of facilities for educational purposes, the Board of Education will make school facilities available for public use on a basis that provides priority to youth activities or other activities that give support to activities that enhance community needs and services.  Indoor facilities are normally available from October 15th to June 15th, between the hours of 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm on days when students are in session.  Application for times outside of these parameters must be done in writing to the Secretary Treasurer and will only be approved if demonstrated extenuating circumstances exist.

Note that there is a different application process for childcare providers (scroll down further).

New policy, procedures and rates became effective September 2016.  Applicants should make themselves aware of all applicable policies and parameters regarding facility rental use (see below).
