Policy - It shall be the policy of the Board of School Directors to encourage community use of school facilities when such use is in the public interest, does not conflict with school activities, and is not detrimental to the purpose of schools.
Procedure - Read the regulations for use of school facilities. Complete this form and return to the District Office along with "Certificate of Insurance" (liability coverage of at least $300,000) signifying CCSD as an additional insured. By signing the attached Facilities Request Form you are agreeing to the district’s Hold Harmless Clause. Allow ten (10) working days notice from the time of your request for approval.
Fee - (See Section IV [below] Community Use of School Buildings) You will be billed if rental or other charges are indicated.
Make checks payable to the Central Columbia School District.
The district will send a bill to all users and renters who are required to pay personnel fees. Do not pay the staff member directly.
The school district encourages the use of facilities by a variety of groups. However, the district discourages groups from reserving facilities and then not using them. This practice restricts other potential users from gaining access. Therfore, the school district will charge $25 for each occurrence that a facility is reserved but not used. If the total charge for one school year reaches $100, the group will be removed from the approved users list (if they are on that list) and may jeopardize future use of the facilities. Cancellations will be accepted by calling the superintendent's office up to seven days prior to the event. Cancellations may also be accepted on an emergency basis with prior approval at the superintendent's office. Cancellations due to inclement weather will be considered an emergency.
