Community Use of District Facilities
Springfield Public Schools desires to be responsible stewards of district resources, including the facilities provided by the community. Our facilities are a community asset, and it is the administrative practice of the school district to make schools available for public use under responsible adult supervision.
Rental opportunities are available in adherence with district policies, and should not interrupt school programs or classes, not harm district fields, buildings, or budgets and maintain safe and secure environments for students, staff and the public.
In addition, the District is vested in supporting community activities of a civic or recreational nature that are deemed appropriate. Use of facilities for partisan, political or sectarian purposes may be granted with Superintendent or Board of Education approval.
The District reserves the right to grant or deny permission for use of district fields and/or buildings at its sole discretion. In most cases, use by local students will have priority over adult and/or organizational activities.
Recently, SPS converted our rental process for outside entities to an online platform. Below please find a link to the new system as well as helpful resources about utilizing district facilities. Please note, beginning January 1, 2020 the district adopted a new fee structure for outside rentals.
In summer 2023, the District moved to a new online facility request and rental system called Facilitron. Renters will be able to use Facilitron to access photos and descriptions, see real-time availability, get estimated quotes, and pay online. If you need assistance setting up an account and/or submitting a facility-use request, you can contact Facilitron directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling them at 800-272-2962. Facilitron's online support page can be found at support.facilitron.com.
