It is the policy of the Yuma Union High School District #70 Board of Education to make available school facilities to students and residents of YUHSD providing that the building use does not interfere with the primary function, which is the education of children and their related activities.
The Governing Board will establish fees for the use of facilities. All groups or individuals requesting the use of school facilities do so with the understanding that they will make themselves knowledgeable about and aware of all applicable board policies and procedures and that they will abide by them. Failure to do so may result in the immediate termination of the use of the school facility as well as denial of future requests.
Facility rental rates are determined by the classification of the renter. Please see the rental class structure document for further information on classification.
Priorities For Use of School Facilities
- Approved curriculum and student extracurricular activities.
- Parent or other school-related activities.
- District 70 community and non-profit groups.
- District 70 for-profit businesses, etc. and related activities.
The Governing Board recognizes the importance of utilizing its facilities as community centers throughout the district. The Governing Board may consider such use so long as it does not interfere with student education or student-related activities.Final authority for use of facilities, or continued use of facilities, rests with the Governing Board. The Governing Board or the Superintendent may revoke any such use, without liability, if they feel it is necessary or desirable. The Governing Board and the Superintendent reserve the right, without liability, to pre-empt any scheduled activity or event at any time that a student-related activity or event requires the use of the school facility.
