Facility Use

District-owned facilities may be made available for public use pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes § 15-1105.  The Governing Board adopted the spirit and intent of this public law in making the District facilities available to the public.  In doing so, however, the district cannot subject itself or its residents to liability not otherwise assumed in the normal course of operations.  When districts decide to make school facilities available to the public, therefore, a process for compliance with state statute should be in place.

Three key elements of a successful facility use program – compliance with restrictions on facility use for political purposes; a risk assessment evaluation; and an application procedure are found in the Facility Use Handbook below.
