We are proud of our schools and we appreciate the investment made by the community to provide these facilities for our students and staff.
By their nature and function, schools are often the largest structures in a community. 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 educational program of the schools 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 below-listed uses. 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 their use. Where rules so specify, no item of equipment may be used except by a qualified operator.|
| ||3.||Users shall be liable financially for damage to the school premises and for proper chaperonage.|
At the present time, any approval of facilities use is contingent upon COVID-19 conditions within Franklin County.
