Use of Facilities

The Prospect Park Board of Education believes that the school facilities of this district should be made available for recreation programs and educational and civic events sponsored by nonprofit organizations provided that they do not interfere with the educational programs of the schools, as stated in N.J.S.A. Title 18A.  Moreover, the Board will permit the use of school facilities when permission is requested in writing and has been approved by the Board in this priority order:

Any request that does not meet the requirements of 1., 2. or 3. above must be submitted to the Superintendent Schools for review, then in turn, he/she will present it to the Board if he/she believes it is sufficiently related to the educational advancement of citizens of the community.

It is the policy of the Board of Education that the school facilities are not to be used for any purpose that violates democratic principles of American ideals, or for any purpose that will in any way interfere with the most effective utilization of school facilities for school purposes.

No grant of permission to use school property shall carry with it the right to exclude members of the Board of Education or any representative thereof from the property, and they shall have full and free access to any part of the building at all times.

The Board of Education reserves the right to cancel the use of any school facilities in the event that a school-related activity shall be scheduled during the time already granted.

The Board of Education has adopted the following rules and regulations for community use of school facilities:
