All groups and/or individuals using Lane County School District 4J facilities under all Classes including those that are school sponsored, and/or approved youth groups using facilities for no cost or a nominal fee, must adhere to all Lane County School District 4J Terms and Conditions and Board Policies.  In addition, the group’s local, regional (if any), and national (if any) policies must comply with all Lane County School District 4J Terms and Conditions and Board Policies.  It is the responsibility of the Administrator or Principal to ensure that these requirements are met.

  3. Will not interrupt the school’s programs

The administration is authorized by the Board to cancel building use permits when it is apparent that such action is necessary for the best interest of the district.  Nevertheless, the district will attempt to give at least a week’s cancelation notice if a group’s approval to use facilities must be revoked.


No group shall be granted the use of any facility with the presence of a trained supervisor approved by the district.  The district and the using organization must agree on the level and type of supervision required.  The role of the facility supervisor shall be clearly defined by the district and the using organization’s representative.


As long as a facility supervisor is qualified and mutually acceptable, she/he/they/them does not need to be an employee of the district or the using organization.  However, if the faculty supervisor is not an employee of the district or the using organization, she/he/they/them must be a registered volunteer of one or the other.  A volunteer so registered becomes an “agent” for the organization with whom they are registered and thus should be covered under that group’s liability insurance.  The employing organization is responsible for the actions of all employees, volunteers or agents.


All district employees who are hired by the district to supervise district facilities will be paid through the 4J payroll department.  Costs for 4J hired labor provided for a specific activity (including overtime hours for Class I activities) must be reimbursed to the district by the using group or department.  These hours will be billed by the Facilities Management Office.


The district reserves the right to require police supervision at any event the administration deems necessary, and to charge the user for that supervision.


District keys should not be shared or given to non-district employees without appropriate record keeping and accountability.  If the principal or administration deems it necessary to issue a key, a $50.00 deposit must be charged and a key Form 7-E completed.  The deposit will be retained in the school’s petty cash account and will be forfeited if the key is not returned by the date specified.  Keys must be returned annually or at the end of each season.


Security ID badges should not be issued to anyone other than district staff members assigned to the site to be used.  If this is not possible and the principal or administration deems it necessary, clearance may be obtained from the Facilities Management Office.


Municipal Park and Recreation departments and youth organizations, including Kidsports and YMCA, ar required to comply with the above security guidelines.


Any organization sponsoring the use of the building or grounds shall assume liability for any accidents that occur upon the grounds or in the buildings during the times such facilities are in use under its direction.  The using organization is required to provide to the Facilities Management Office proof of adequate insurance coverage with the district named as additional insured.  Please see the INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS page for additional details.


The building administrator, designated supervisor, or Facilities Management administration has the right to stop any activity at any time if in his or her judgment there are violations of the rules contained in this document, or if the activity is deemed to be hazardous to personnel, property, equipment, or participants.


If damages occur during the use of a facility, documentation must be provided by the supervisor detailing the date, time, location, nature of the damage, and the responsible party.  The principal, administrator and the Facility Management Office should be notified as soon as practicable and photos taken if possible.


Use of alcoholic beverages, tobacco products and illicit drugs in any form is prohibited on school premises.  Weapons are also prohibited on school property, see Board Policy KGB and Board Policy KGBB.  The maximum number of people permitted in any school facility shall be restricted to its seating capacity as indicated by the fire marshal.


If a non-school group agrees to pay the assessed charges which fully cover the cost of providing heat or air-conditioning for activities which occur outside of normal staff working days and hours (when buildings are normally heated or cooled), this service may be provided.  The Facilities Management Office will provide an estimate of the cost according to each individual circumstance.


Equipment and furniture, including pianos, shall be used and moved only with the approval of the principal, administrator or Facilities Management Office.  Schools must repair or replace equipment and supplies depleted by the user from the school’s own budget, and so may bill the user directly for an appropriate amount to cover such costs.


Items of equipment such as audio-visual or athletic equipment, chairs, bleachers, etc., shall not be loaned nor rented for use off the school premises.  However, such equipment may be loaned to cooperating organizations (e.g. parks & rec. or business school partners) for district related non-commerical activities.
