The Superintendent/designee is authorized to establish procedures for use of district properties, including rental fees, supervisory requirements, restrictions, security, etc. For rental fee purposes, people seeking the use of district facilities have been divided into three categories. All participating users will be given equal opportunity to rent, subject to limits set forth in Policy 4260 and Procedure 4260P.
School-related, community-betterment groups, parent, youth and/or teacher groups whose purpose is the advancing or supplementing of education, public agencies or other local groups formed to address community issues, whose meeting serves public purpose, in the judgment of the Federal Way Public Schools. Examples of groups in this category are: PTA, Booster Clubs and superintendent approved activities. Youth non-profit social and recreation groups whose main purpose is to promote the welfare and improve the quality of life for community boys and girls. Examples of groups in this category are: Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Campfire Girls and community athletic youth teams.
Community, non-community, non-profit and minimal profit organizations who use district facilities or fields to provide/promote instruction or entertainment, or other activities for which public or commercial facilities are generally rented, will pay a fee based on Category 2 of the district rental schedule. Examples of groups in this category are: Adult recreation, Community meetings, Homeowners associations, political groups.
All other organizations, including but not limited to churches, profit-making groups, and business-related enterprises, will pay a fee based upon Category 3 of the district rental schedule. While the district would prefer profit-making organizations use commercial or private facilities, facilities may be rented at the prevailing rate charged by commercial facilities in the area.
To ensure that funds intended for K-12 education are not used for other purposes, the user will reimburse the district according to the published fee schedule, Form 118-2.
District sponsored curricular and co-curricular activities retain first priority in the use of facilities and fields. Authorization for use of any district property shall not be considered an approval or endorsement of the activity, organization or purposes represented. Organizations requesting use of any facilities must complete and sign Form No. 118, Application and Permit for Use of School Facilities.
The District may cancel any use agreement or authorization.
All applications for the use of school district facilities will be considered by Federal Way Public Schools without regard to race, color, nationality, origin, gender, or disability.
