Use of School Facilities

  • Community Use of School Facilities

    The Grand Island Central School District Board of Education welcomes and encourages community groups to use school facilities when they are not being used for school programs. 

    If your organization would like to use any school facility, such as a classroom, cafeteria, auditorium, pool, gymnasium or outside athletic field, please call the District receptionist at 773-8800 who will connect you to the appropriate office. Groups will be asked to complete appropriate permits and insurance forms before consideration can be made for scheduling a facility.  Usage fees may be applied (see below).

    In order to accommodate the numerous requests received, the District prioritizes use of space to outside groups in the following order: 
    -  District sanctioned school events, 
    -  District sports, 
    -  community education, 
    -  town recreation,
    -  and all other outside agencies.  

    During athletic seasons, the high school gymnasiums are reserved for District teams and not available for use.  

    We have a responsibility to maintain the community’s investment in our schools. Our priority every evening is to insure that buildings are clean, safe and ready to greet students. 

    We recognize the demand for use of school facility space is at a premium. Your cooperation in complying is appreciated and every effort will be made to accommodate your group’s facility request.
