Schools should be used as a place to come together, volunteer, build skills, access community programs, become physically active and build strong and healthy communities.
What is Community Use of Schools?
Avon Maitland District School Board endorse and encourage groups to come together to become physically active, and to build strong and healthy communities within our school facilities.
Community Use of Schools is a Ministry of Education initiative, which supports access to schools during non school hours. To support affordable community access to school facilities the Ministry of Education provides school boards with an annual Community Use of Schools Grant, which boards use to subsidize rental rates for non-profit organizations.
For information on the CUS initiative, please refer to AP 550 Use of Facilities, which includes classification of usage and schedules of fees.
In addition to accepting the terms and conditions detailed in AP 550 Use of Facilities, all users must also acknowledge, review and understand AP 319 Concussion Protocol.
