(619) 425-9600 ext. 1370

The Governing Board recognizes that District Facilities and Grounds are a community resource and authorize their use by community groups for purposes provided for in the California Education Code "Civic Center Act" when such use does not interfere with school or District activities.  See Board Policy and Administrative Regulation 1330. 

Terms and Conditions:

All requestors must read and agree to the District Rules and Regulations for Use of School Property for Public Purposes and as a Civic Center and the Statement of Information and Agreement at the time the request is made.  Failure to adhere to the Rules and Regulations may result in revocation of use and/or denial of future facility use within the District.

Insurance and Document Requirements:

Please note, all requestors must submit valid proof of insurance in the amount of $1,000,000, which names the Chula Vista Elementary School District as an insured party.  Non-profit organizations must submit a copy of the 501(C)(3) Determination Letter along with a current IRS Form W-9.  Failure to provide proof of insurance or required evidence of non-profit status will result in the denial of the facility use request.

District has Priority:

All facility use by community organizations is contingent upon facility availability.  The school site and/or District have priority for all facility use. The School Principal determines which individuals and/or organizations may use school facilities. Facility use may be revoked at any time with little or no notice in the event the school and/or District needs the facility for school/District purposes. 

Step By Step Instructions:

The Community Use Requester Guide will take you step by step how to set your organization up in the Community Use system and request facilities.

Requesting Facility Use:

It is a good idea to contact the school principal before requesting facility use at the school sites.  Contact information for principals can be found at CVESD Schools.

All facility use requests must be submitted online through the SchoolDude Community Use program at least two weeks prior to the date of the Board of Education Meeting that precedes the actual facility use.  See Board of Education Meeting calendar for dates.  Failure to submit a request on time will result in a delay of the facility use.  Facility use may not begin until proper authorization has been received, either from the School Principal, and/or the Board of Education, as applicable. 

Facility Use Fees:

Fees are charged according to the District Fee Schedule.  Payment is due for Direct Cost and Full Fee rentals at least one week prior to facility use.  Concellations must be made at least 72 hours prior to the date of the rental.  NOTE:  District Facility Use Fees increased effective July 1, 2017.
