It is the intention of the School Board of Community Unit School District 300 to provide the School District facilities to external community groups and organizations for the benefit of the community and the schools. School facilities are available to community organizations during non-school hours when such use does not: (1) interfere with any school function or affect the safety of students or employees, or (2) affect the property or liability of the School District. The use of school facilities for school purposes has precedence over all other uses.
Our district processes all facility rental requests online. It is a two-step process. First, you will need to register your organization as a community user. Once approved, you will be able to process a facility rental request online. The overall process can take up to 10 business days.
Please review the Facility Rental Program Guide and Fee Schedule for information and fee details. Any questions regarding the rental program should be directed to the appropriate building. To alleviate interruption of regularly scheduled school activities, no dates will be confirmed until approved by the building principal/designee.
