Cancellation of Contracts

Core Values Guiding the Use of School Facilities by the Community

  • Schools are the cornerstones of neighborhoods and a vital resource within the community

  • Effective utilization of schools as a community resource is cost effective and improves the quality of life for residents.

  • Management of community use of school facilities is a highly visible function of the district and is often the only contact taxpayers may have with the district. Facility users are important stakeholders within our system.

  • Effective management of community use of school facilities intentionally seeks to balance the needs of the community with the needs of the school system.

  • An accountable and responsive facility use system builds positive, long-term partnerships and is essential to the civic structure within the community.

Priorities

All groups using Robbinsdale Area Schools facilities will be categorized according to five classifications. Determination of priority use and rental charges is based upon classifications. Check with the facilities scheduler for more information. Occasionally, non-school scheduled activities may conflict with a school program. In these situations the school program will take priority over the non-school activity. If possible we would make every effort to find an alternative facility for the non-school group.

Cancellation of Facilities Contract

  1. The facilities scheduler must be notified of a cancellation a minimum of 7 working days prior to the scheduled use. Failure to do so may result in the contract holder incurring expenses associated with the activity.

  2. A Facilities Contract is not to be considered by the holder as a lease and the district reserves the right to cancel or revoke any contract at any time with or without cause. In the event of such a cancellation or revocation, there will be no claim or right to damages or compensation on account of any loss, damage, or expense whatsoever.

  3. Facilities Contracts may be cancelled by the school district for any of the following reasons:

  • When a group misses two consecutive meetings or activities.

  • Misuse of equipment or facilities.

  • Inadequate group supervision or inappropriate group conduct as reported by the staff person on duty.

  • If a determination is made that continuation of the Facilities Contract would be potentially harmful or dangerous, as reported by the staff person on duty.

  • When school is cancelled due to inclement weather, mechanical systems problems or other unpredictable situations.

  • When any conditions of use or regulations governing use of these facilities are not adhered to by the user we reserve the right to cancel the activity and/or the facilities contract.
