All Publications are available in accessible formats, upon request.

Ontario's schools are community hubs where all people can stay active, gather to learn and participate in activities of community based organizations. The government has provided a grant to make school facilities, indoor and outdoor, more affordable for use outside of school hours.

Community users are required by the Rainy River District School Board to carry insurance coverage during their use of the facilities. Applicants can purchase insurance through the Board by contacting the Community Use Coordinator.

Policy 6.10 Community Use of School Facilities and Grounds was reviewed and approved at the October 2019 meeting of the Rainy River District School Board. Please review the Policy as it includes the Schedule of Fees, and list of classifications for user groups that may be subsidized. Not-For-Profit user groups may also submit a fee waiver application for review and potential approval.

For information regarding Accessibility concerns or questions please contact Mia Sexton, Community Use Coordinator.
