Community Use of Facilities

The facilities of the Sachem Central School District are primarily used by students for their learning.  School buildings and playing fields can be used by not-for-profit community based organizations and groups for activities that are educational, cultural, recreational or civic in nature, and primarily for the benefit of School District residents.  We believe that school facilities are an important resource in developing and sustaining lifelong learning, in promoting intergovernmental cooperation, and in encouraging citizen participation in community activities.

The Sachem Central School District encourages the use of school buildings and grounds by the community to the extent permissible by State law. When space is available, during times that do not interfere with District instructional programs, student activities, or activities of school-related groups, community members may reserve school facilities on a scheduled basis.

The use of these facilities is governed by the policy adopted by the Board of Education. Below please find District Policy 1500 – Community Use of School Facilities, as well as some helpful information.
