Gower District 62 facilities are a community resource owned and operated by the Board of Education primarily for the education of the children in the District. The Board will consider providing the community with space for educational, civic, cultural, recreational, or charitable or other meetings and programs when such requests do not interfere with the school program or school-sponsored activities. The Board, however, may refuse to allow use of its facilities for any meetings, programs, or activities that may be disruptive, violative of the rights of privacy of others, obscene, vulgar, or indecent. In all cases, the use of District facilities for school purposes has precedence over all other uses.
The District facilities will be made available six months prior to the onset of the activity or event on a first-come, first-served basis within the prioritized category of users listed below.
