Community Use of School is an initiative that supports access to school space outside of school hours for not-for-profit community groups.
For details, see section P.4.10 of the Rainbow District School Board's Policy Manual.
Groups can book school facilities online through the Community Use of Schools Online Permit Application System. Facilities available at each school are featured on an online calendar by date and time.
In accordance with Board Policy 4.10 Use of Schools by Outside Organizations, groups renting facilities within Rainbow District School Board are required to provide proof of liability coverage prior to the event.
Insurance can also be purchased from the Board, assisting groups in securing coverage at low premium rates.
To purchase, use the drop-down box under the Insurance section of the Community Use of Schools Online Permit Application System and choose the "Purchase Insurance" option.

A charitable organization is an organization established and operated for charitable purposes that devotes its resources to charitable activities. The organization must be registered with Revenue Canada as a charity, under the Income Tax Act. Under the Ontario Charities Accounting Act, all charities operating in Ontario must be registered with the Public Trustees Office to be recognized as an incorporated charity.
The organization must meet the above criteria of a not-for-profit or charitable organization in order to be exempt from costs.
The Board recognizes the "Joint Use Agreements" (reciprocal agreements) with the municipalities and townships.
The uses under these agreements are at "no charge" unless there is a requirement for special arrangements for staffing or equipment.
The Board recognizes that from time to time various groups or individuals contribute time and or/services to the school and the school may reciprocate by offering the use of the school facilities at "no charge".
The Manager of Facilities must approve all of these arrangements upon recommendation from the Principal.
All other users will be charged a fee as per the schedule of fees.
