Public Use of School Buildings in our District Any local non-profit and/or civic organizations may rent school buildings, facilities, and fields for educational, cultural, civic, social, recreational, governmental, and non-partisan political activities.
How to Schedule Building Use
Any organization wishing to use our public schools must submit an electronic building use request (see below) to the District at least 30 working days prior to the event. This allows time to complete a Use of Facilities Request, obtain the appropriate Proof of Insurance, and receive Board approval. Requests must be made by an officer of the organization that carries the liability insurance for the event.
However, should an extenuating circumstance arise that requires the need to schedule an Athletic Facility under the 30 working day provision prior to a Board Meeting please contact the High School Athletic Director Mr. Bobby Grauso at 908-852-8150 Ext. 253 to seek approval before entering your request into the system. Upon approval of the High School Athletic Director and submission into facility Scheduler the Board of Education will approve the request based upon the Athletic Director's recommendation at the next regularly schedule Board of Education Meeting.
Organizations holding regular events throughout the year need file only one request at the beginning of the year. Please note Season use (10 Week Period) for a facility or field use may be granted with the understanding that school functions will override any non-school group. At times, a facility area may need to be shared with another organization. Requests for use of public school facilities must be renewed each year.
If changes to dates of scheduled events need to be made please contact the Building contact below immediately to ensure that your event takes place.
