Local non-profit and/or civic organizations may rent school buildings for educational, cultural, civic, social, recreational, governmental, and non-partisan political activities. (Policy KF/KF-R)
All organizations should review and save the "Building Use Rates" and "Building Use Guidelines" files at the bottom of this page.
Per SFSD Building Use Guidelines: Use of District facilities/properties/equipment for youth-serving organizations or activities involving youth, including school-sponsored parent groups, is not permitted on Wednesday nights between the first and last day of student attendance.
How to Schedule Building Use
Any organization wishing to use Sioux Falls public schools must submit an electronic building use request (see below) to the Office of Community Relations at least 20 working days prior to the event. Twenty days allows time to complete a Lease/Use Agreement, receive Proof of Insurance, and notify all parties concerned.
Requests must be made by an officer of the organization that carries liability insurance for the event.
Organizations holding regular meetings throughout the year need file only one request at the beginning of the year. Requests for use of public school facilities must be renewed each year.
