Fort Mill School District General Principles for Community Use of District Facilities

sealThe District Board of Trustees views District property as a community asset and promotes community use of such property for purposes that are consistent with and contribute to the District’s programs and promote the health and welfare of the children, youth, and adults in our District. As a service to the community, the Board may allow the use of public school property by individuals, organizations, institutions, and businesses for such educational, recreational, social, civic, philanthropic, and like purposes as the board deems in the best interest of the community.

The Board authorizes the Superintendent to prescribe and publish separate administrative procedures required for the implementation of this policy in an orderly and equitable manner.
