Facilities Use

Encompassing a wide range of buildings and facilities, District 2155 schools are some of the community’s greatest assets. Allowing groups/organizations and individuals to utilize the District’s buildings/facilities is an important part of using our community’s resources to the fullest extent. School facilities are available to community groups and organizations at times when regular K–12 and Community Education programs are not scheduled and when such activities will not conflict with these school programs or extracurricular activities. The Activities Director shall approve scheduling School District 2155 facilities.
