Facilities Rental

It is the policy of the Salem School Committee to encourage the use of School Department property by Salem community groups for worthwhile purposes when such uses do not conflict or interfere with school programs or with the activities of school-sponsored organizations.

Fees are assessed to groups using school facilities to substantially meet the related custodial, utility, and maintenance costs. The school department makes every effort to keep costs as low as possible.

Use of school facilities shall be limited to public gatherings which promote the general welfare. The School Committee is the final authority and judges whether the activity promotes the general welfare or is harmful to property.

The committee reserves the right to reject any or all requests for the use of school property.
