Facilities/Use and Civic Permits

SMFCSD believes that school facilities and grounds are a vital community resource which should be used to foster community involvement and development.  Therefore, the Board authorizes the use of school facilities by district residents and community groups for purposes specified in the Civic Center Act, to the extent that such use does not interfere with school activities or other school-related uses.

Please read the District's Board Policy (BP) and Administrative Regulations (AR) on Use of School Facilities for more information.  2023-2024 fees

How to Rent a School Facility (Not BPAC)
 
All groups must apply for and obtain an approved permit in order to use a school facility. The process is as follows:
 
  • Step 1: Renter submits a request for dates and times at a specific school and a specific facility. Also provide proof of insurance coverage in this step.
  • Step 2: The request is submitted to the school site for approval.
  • Step 3: Once the school approves the dates and times, the request moves to M & O for invoicing. 
  • Step 4: The renter must pay for the invoice to secure the permit.
  • Step 5: Upon receipt of payment, an approved permit will be issued.
