Civic Center/Use of Facilities
The Governing Board makes school facilities and grounds under its jurisdiction available as a civic center, after the needs of the schools are met, to citizens and community groups for the following purposes subject to District policies and regulations:
1. Public, literary, scientific, recreational, educational, or public agency meetings.
2. The discussion of matters of general or public interest.
3. The administration of examinations for the selection of personnel or the instruction of precinct Board members by public agencies.
4. Supervised recreational activities.
--> Facilities and grounds must be left clean after use.
--> Tobacco and alcohol use are not permitted on school property.
