Facility Use Update

Posted by Adam Spina on 10/24/2018 7:10:00 AM

In accordance with Board Policy #9250-R, Use of District Facilities, we have improved our building use system and management tools including the creation of a single point of contact for all facility requests. Ms. Janelle Marvin is our new Facilities Use Coordinator. Ms. Marvin’s office is in the Community Fitness Center/Pool area. She may be contacted at 517-655-2142 x7740 or via email at marvinja@gowcs.net. We are confident these improvements will cause less confusion and be easier for everyone.

Additionally, reservation requests are now made online. The online request form provides a quick and easy way to request a location. The system also allows for a confirmation email to be generated, which documents the request and any associated costs, if applicable. The online form and additional information is available on the Enrichment, Fitness Center, and Pool website.

Finally, I’ve had a number of questions over the last couple of months about which groups fall into Category 1. I believe the most recent revision to the policy clarifies these questions. To summarize, Category 1 organizations are exempt from fees associated with facility requests in most instances. Category 1 organizations include any K-12 district sponsored academic or co-curricular class or activity. It also applies to registered school support groups such as boosters, PTSA, or WSF. Finally, Williamston based youth athletic programs are included in Category 1, with some exceptions. Please reference the policy or contact the Enrichment office for more details.
