The use of District facilities is governed by School Board Policy #707, Use of School Facilities. "The Board recognizes that although the primary purpose of the school buildings, facilities and property is to provide students with an appropriate learning environment, the Board may make school facilities available to individuals and community groups without discrimination and in accordance with this policy, provided the use does not interfere with the educational program of the schools." The requests follow guidelines that have been approved by the Board of School Directors.
Facility Usage Request
The Allegheny Valley School District asks that requests for building/facility usage be completed on the form provided by the school district and submitted at least one month in advance and prior to board meetings. The request should be sent to the building principal in which the requested area is housed.
