The Port Angeles School District board of directors subscribes to the belief that public schools are owned and operated by and for the community. The public is encouraged to use school facilities, but will be expected to reimburse the district for such use to ensure that funds intended for education are not used for other purposes.
The Superintendent is authorized to establish procedures for use of school facilities, including rental rates, supervisory requirements, restrictions, and security. Those using school facilities will maintain insurance for accident and liability arising out of the use of District facilities of not less than $1,000,000 and naming the District as an additional insured. The Superintendent or his or her designee may waive such insurance.
