The superintendent shall designate individuals to schedule and issue permits for the use of school facilities and to ensure that economical and efficient use is made of the time and space available. It is the responsibility of the requesting agency to procure a building permit form from the respective school building principal or department director, and file it in the appropriate manner as outlined in Regulation 1500-R.
In addition to compliance with all applicable state laws, the District shall:

- Require payment for any damage or loss, whether or not a fee for use has been charged.
