Community Use of SchoolsEdit
The Community Use of Schools initiative is a way of making school facilities accessible to the public. Such facilities include classrooms, gymnasiums, auditoriums, and more. The rental fees can range from as little as $1.50 a night to as much as $125.00 per night, plus applicable staff. Quite often the staff will include janitors (if outside their regularly scheduled hours), but in some cases may included specialized staff for auditorium rentals. These staff are often specially trained students, but sometimes are outside professionals brought in by the host school to accommodate the renter's needs. Seminars, corporate events, dance recitals, and community theatre groups are the most common renters of the auditorium, whereas local sports tournaments are the most common renters of the gymnasiums.
Presentations that have occurred in these facilities include a presentation from Chris Hadfield, and amateur productions of musicals such as Les Misérables, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Willy Wonka, Phantom of the Opera, and more.
