‚ÄčImportant Information Regarding The Use of BCPS Facilities for Non-School Purposes

Wednesday, February 03, 2016
The School Board of Broward County, Florida, recently adopted revisions to School Board Policy 1341, which governs the use of Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) facilities for non-school purposes.  

The changes to Policy 1341 impact community stakeholders in several identified categories, including school allied groups, non-profit corporations and 501(c)(3) organizations, government organizations that do not have separate agreements with the School Board for the use of school facilities, and other organizations.  

The changes cover a variety of areas, such as rental fees, consumable costs fees, property damage insurance, dates that specific components of the policy take effect, food truck vendor requirements, and more.  The policy revisions are necessary to recoup the increased costs of operating school facilities for non-school purposes, enhance working relationships with District partners and stakeholders, and provide additional clarity to policy provisions.
