This charge includes a custodian, utilities and, at Scotland High School, security and light and sound technician.

    Do I have to pay for set-up and clean up time?

    Who pays for the custodian after the event is over?

    $21.00 per hour.

    When is payment due?

    Payment for all school rentals is due 7 days before the event. Rentals not paid in advance will be cancelled.

    How do I cancel the event/rental?

    Cancellation notice must be received in the Community Schools office 48 hours prior to the event or rental fees will not be refunded. It is the responsibility of the user to contact the individual school of cancellation.

     

    Can the custodian volunteer his/her time for the event

    To comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act, custodians or other school employees may not volunteer their time for a rental.

     

    What happens, for example, if I only use the building for two hours and I paid to rent the building for three?

    As payment is due prior to the rental, any refunds for rental will be at the discretion of the

     School System and based on the time sheets submitted by school personnel working the event.

     

    Can I use the kitchen as part of my cafeteria rental?

    Use of the kitchen is not included as part of the rental. To have access to the kitchen requires that

    a kitchen staff member be on site. Their time is billed at $21.00 per hour.
