Board plans meeting on facilities-use policy


The Washington County Board of Education will hold an informational meeting to discuss the current facilities-use policy and to seek input from the public Thursday, March 18, at 7 p.m. in the Board of Education auditorium

The Use of School Facilities by Non School Groups policy and accompanying regulation originally were adopted by the School Board in 1976. The policy regulation, which includes a fee structure for usage, was amended in 1985 and 1988. The board modified the fee structure again in 1993. In August 2003, the Board of Education approved the revised policy and regulation to address the increased costs of providing use of school facilities to non-school groups, school officials said in a press release.
