Use of Public School Facilities by Outside Groups

Whether for the provision of services such as after-school programs, before and after-school childcare, or community events, schools need to navigate the legal issues involved with the use of school property in order to minimize potential liability. In this practical webinar, nationally-recognized school law attorney Erin D. Gilsbach will identify the legal issues and areas of potential liability related to the use of public school facilities by non-school organizations. She will highlight best practices and key considerations for school administrators and cover such topics as:

  • Leasing school facilities to outside groups/vendors.
  • Establishing district-wide policies regarding the use of school facilities.
  • Determining appropriate costs for use of school facilities by different types of groups.
  • Constitutional considerations and public forum issues related to the use of school facilities by community groups.
  • Practical liability issues and more.

But rather than just advising administrators simply turn down all facility requests, Ms. Gilsbach provides proactive measures that schools can take to limit liability while also serving the needs of the community.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

In this session, Ms. Gilsbach will address:

  • U.S. Constitutional issues related to the use of school facilities by outside groups.
  • Common areas of liability related to the use of school facilities.
  • Development of effective and legally-defensible use of facilities policies and procedures.
  • Legal implications of establishing cost/fee structures for use of facilities.
  • Legal considerations regarding selection and vetting of vendors for use of facilities.
  • And much more!
