Policy Manual


Policy: EBH
Use Of School Property


The facilities of the Lyme Public Schools are the property of the citizens of the Town of Lyme. As such, the School Board encourages the use of these facilities by responsible local community organizations. As custodian of the school properties, the School Board must establish certain safeguards to insure proper protection and reasonable maintenance of the school physical plant when it is used for community activities. The School Board must also reserve the right to establish a priority of use of school facilities.

Rules governing the application for the use of the Lyme Public Schools, and the fees for such use, are covered in accompanying application.

This application must be submitted to the Principal and approved prior to the use of the facility.

No school equipment may be used for other than school, school-related, civic or educational purposes.

The Board shall permit school equipment to be loaned to staff members when such use is related to their employment, and to students when the equipment is to be used in connection with their studies or extracurricular activities. A written agreement should be used, which specifies the borrower's responsibility to return the equipment in the condition in which it was received and his/her financial responsibility for any loss or damage, which will meet the requirements of all applicable insurance
