Community Use of District Facilities

Welcome to the Redmond School District Facility Use page!

As a public school district, we offer the opportunity for community members, businesses and local organizations to utilize our facilities as a resource.

At this time we are accepting user registration applications and facility use requests for the new school year. All users/groups must register annually prior to submitting an application for facility use. Review and approvals of registration applications and facility use requests will be done on a case by case basis in accordance with District Board policies and guidelines.

Applications must be received no less than two weeks prior to the event for application consideration.  If you have a last minute request or change to an approved request, you are asked to contact the Facilities Department at 541-923-5437 ext 1166.  Last minute requests are not guaranteed to be processed even when district staff are contacted. ANY NEEDS NOT SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSED IN THE APPLICATION FOR FACILITY USE ARE NOT GUARANTEED.


Facility Use Overview

The Board supports the community education concept, which encourages the use of school district buildings and facilities for education, recreation and service activities.  The Board believes that district educational and extra-curricular programs shall have priority over other community uses and has directed the administration to develop regulations governing building and facility use by community user groups.  The Board reserves the right to assess fees for community use of district facilities.  Depending on the type of activity, proof of liability insurance may be required.

Full language for the district policy and regulations for “Community Use of District Facilities” can be read under Policy KG and KG-AR.  See links below.

Food and Fundraising Events

Due to health safety regulations, no kitchen use or food handling within district kitchens shall be conducted without the signed agreement of the district’s Nutrition Services Manager.  In such instances, the building user may be required to have district licensed food handler(s) overseeing the kitchen use and handling of food preparation/distribution.  These services will be assessed additional fee charges.  See the link for details: Nutrition Services Facility Use

Any building use where students are raising funds through an outside agency or contracted activity must have prior approval by the superintendent or designee.  Activities concerned with fundraising for charitable or other causes not relating to school activities may not be carried on without prior approval of the principal and the superintendent.  Fundraising Activities Policy IGDF
