Building Rentals - Community Use of School facilities
Since school buildings and grounds are public property, the Board of Education may make them available for purposes other than education when they are not in use for school purposes.
The Board of Education shall grant the use of school facilities for activities of an educational, cultural, civic, and other non-commercial uses consistent with the public interest when such use does not interfere with the school program or school sponsored activities as permitted under law. The use of school facilities for school purposes has precedence over all other uses. Persons on school property must abide by the District’s conduct rules at all times. The District does not loan out any equipment or property of the East Hartford Public Schools to any organization and/or to the general public.
Commercial use of school facilities must be for educational purposes only. School rental fees will be charged on school holidays and weekends. School rental fees will also be charged during the normally scheduled work week, Monday through Friday.
Non-commercial groups will be charged for building usage during school holidays, weekends, and Monday through Friday. The only groups exempt from paying building usage fees include the following: Official Town of East Hartford organizations, e.g., Parks and Recreation Department, The Boy Scouts of America, Big Sisters of America, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Future Farmers of America, Girl Scouts of USA, and Little League Baseball, Inc. Any exempt group wishing to use facilities must receive permission from the Superintendent of Schools/designee and must vacate the premises no later than 10:00 p.m., Monday-Friday. The Board of Education reserves the right to charge exempt groups for building usage on weekends and/or holidays, or for activities extending beyond 10:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.
