Group Classifications Example:

Classification I – School agencies or related organizations. The following agencies or groups shall be permitted the use of school building at no charge: all internal district groups, organizations and Community Education programs. Scouts and governmental units are in this classification as long as they are not charging admission or hosting a fundraising activity.

Classification II – Groups from classification I or youth groups who are charging admission. Senior citizen groups or special classified organizations who are directly working with the school on a particular activity with a benefit to the schools. Other non-profit organizations. Examples of this classification: Church Groups, Little League Football/Hockey/Baseball/Soccer, etc.

Classification III – Residents using facilities that are in business classifications or private groups but not a part of a service club or school- or youth-related program. This section is for non-fund raising type activities such as use of classroom or use of auditorium. These groups and agencies must have 75% of their users residents or employees from the  District. Examples here would be local merchants having an activity days for their employees.

Classification IV – This eligible group must also consist of 75% residents or employees in the District, but this particular need for facilities results in the attempt to gain profit from the activity. Example: A local service club supporting an activity that has no benefit to the local schools or organization that offers activities to the district residents for personal profit or fund raising.

Classification V – This is for all other groups not included in Group Classifications III and IV. An example of this is a state or region wide organization holding a program in our schools. This would not necessarily benefit our local program or community, but is deemed a program with a wider scope.
