New Information - Use of School Facilities
San Rafael City Schools (SRCS) recognizes that District facilities are a community resource whose primary purpose is to be used for school programs and activities, but that may also be authorized for use by community groups when such use does not interfere with school activities. Policy allows for a fee, recognizing that there are costs involved in non-school related use of facilities and that charges are necessary so that school monies will not be used in support of non-school related activities.
The SRCS Board of Education recently approved changes to the Board Policy, Administrative Regulation, fees and forms related to the Civic Center Act and Use of School Facilities. Please see the information below related to facilities use.

APPLICATION AND AGREEMENT FOR USE OF SCHOOL FACILITIES AND GROUNDS
*Explanation of "Duly Written Authorization" - If the applicant is an organization, group, society, club, entity, etc., then the person who is submitting the application on behalf of that organization needs to submit written authorization from the organization that gives the person permission to submit the application on the organization’s behalf. The written authorization needs to be given from someone who is legally permitted to bind the organization (such as an officer, etc.). If the applicant is one such authorized officer, they need only sign the application form and include their title.
Facilities Use Fee Schedules
New Fee Schedule - Effective July 1, 2017: A new fee schedule has been approved that will go into effect on July 1, 2017 for use of school facilities. Until that time the fee schedule above dated January 2013 will be used.
School Connected Organizations
The Board of Education recognizes that parents/guardians and community members may wish to organize parent organizations and/or booster clubs for the purpose of supporting district co-curricular and extracurricular programs (“school-connected organizations”), such as athletic teams, debate teams, musical groups, and other activities that provide a positive source of involvement for students consistent with the district’s vision for student learning.
Board Policy and Administrative Regulation 1230 regarding School Connected Organizations were approved by the Board in January 2017 to guide the process for which a community group can request that the Board authorize them as a School-Connected Organization.
