District 49 buildings and fields are available for community use. The district makes its facilities available to its patrons as a supporting community partner. Rental fees may apply to cover the cost of operation and the facility fee. While District 49 property is first and foremost available for educational purposes, the district's Board of Education has permitted the non-district rental of its real property during times when:
- such property is not being used for district purposes
- where the non-district rental will not interfere with the district’s use
- upon such other terms and conditions as the board deems appropriate
District use includes a school’s instructional programs, conferences, meetings and training for students and adults; athletic and academic practices, contests and games; drama, choir and band practices, performances and events; meetings and events of curriculum-related student groups; dances, rallies and other events that are designed to involve an entire student body or any portion thereof; school or district fund raisers; parent-teacher conferences; faculty meetings; and other school or district gatherings of students, parents, and staff.
For more information, see the Community Use of District Real Property board policy.
Prior to requesting district property, review the rental rates, insurance requirements, as well as the Public Conduct on District Property board policy governing activities and conduct.
Community use of the district's buildings and fields must be scheduled through Michelle Garrett, District 49 business office executive assistant, by phone (719.495.1103), fax (719.494.8900) or filling out a building or field request.
