1500 Public Use of School Facilities

While the District’s school buildings and grounds are maintained primarily for the purpose of educating students within the District, the Board of Education recognizes that the buildings and grounds are a valuable community resource and believes that this resource should be available to the community for specific uses that will not interfere with educational activities.

No use shall be made of the buildings or grounds which would interfere or disrupt their most effective use for the benefit of the school children. Any such use, however, shall not be deemed an endorsement of the activity or purpose for which the facilities are used. All uses of school buildings and grounds shall be consistent with Section 414 of the Education Law.
