Building Use/Rental

Groveport Elementary School
We are proud of our schools, and we appreciate the investment made by the community to provide these facilities for our students and staff.
Schools are often the most significant structures in a community by their nature and function. The Groveport Madison Board of Education has adopted policies that promote the use/rental of our schools for various uses. The Board of Education believes that school premises should be made available for community purposes, provided that such use does not infringe on the original and necessary purpose of the property or interfere with the schools' educational program and is harmonious with the purposes of this District.

The Board will permit the use of school premises when such permission has been requested in writing by a responsible organization or a group of citizens and has been approved by the Superintendent.

School premises shall be available for the uses listed below. When there are competing interests, approval will be given according to the following priorities:

 a.Uses directly related to the schools and the operations of the schools;
 b.Uses and groups indirectly related to the schools;
 c.Meetings of employee associations;
 d.Uses for voter registration and elections;
 e.Departments or agencies of the municipal government;
 f.Other governmental agencies;
 g.Community organizations or groups of individuals formed for charitable, civic, social, religious, recreational, and educational purposes;
 h.Commercial or profit-making organizations or individuals offering services for profit.
The following expectations must be followed:
 1.Each user shall present evidence of the purchase of organizational liability insurance to the limit prescribed by District administrative guidelines.
 2.Use of school equipment in conjunction with the use of school premises must be requested in writing and may be granted by the procedure by which permission to use school premises is granted. The users of school equipment must accept liability for any damage or loss to such equipment that occurs while it is in use. Where rules specify, no equipment item may be used except by a qualified operator.
 3.Users shall be liable financially for damage to the school premises and proper chaperonage.
Any use of Groveport Madison Schools property must be approved.

Please submit the completed form to the building principal you want to use. The principal will determine if the school can host your event. If approved at the school level, the form will be forwarded to the Director of Business Services, David Hausmann, who will determine any associated fees for using the facility/grounds.

Please note: Groveport Madison H.S. is currently not accepting facility use requests.

Should you have questions, please contact our Director of Business Services, David Hausmann, or call 614-492-2520.
