Contracts and Rentals


In accordance with School Board Policy FC adopted May 14, 2013, the School Board permits the use of school facilities for community purposes, in accordance with appropriate state and federal laws, provided that such use does not interfere with the educational program.  The full control of all facilities remains with the School Board.  The Board authorizes the Superintendent, or designee, and the Building Principal to grant permission for use by outside groups.  Decisions regarding requests to use school facilities are based on the following order of priority:
  • School-related organization; i.e., PTA, Boosters
  • City of Roanoke
  • Non-profit Roanoke-based organizations
  • Non-profit service groups outside Roanoke
  • Private interest groups
