​Statement of Purpose

The primary purpose or function of public school facilities is to provide quality educational environments conducive to the learning of the students they serve. It is the policy of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education to encourage the use of school buildings and grounds by the community for educational, recreational, civic and cultural activities to the extent possible under public school laws and regulations. Accordingly, community use of school buildings and grounds for educational, recreational, civic and cultural activities shall be permitted so long as such use does not conflict with the use of public school buildings and grounds for public school purposes and activities, with state and federal laws, with local ordinances or with the proper care and maintenance of school facilities and grounds.
