Facility Use & Rental
District 191 facilities, such as classrooms, gymnasiums, auditoriums and meeting spaces, can be reserved by community members for private functions. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with individuals and groups in this way. You can check the availability of our facilities through the Facilities Use Calendar.
Facilities Use Policies
Requests should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the date your activity is scheduled to begin. When your request is approved, you will receive a Permit for the Use of School Facilities.
Any cancellations made fewer than seven days prior to the usage date will be charged as if the facility was used.
Rental fees are based on user group classifications which can be accessed through the Policy 902 Facilities Addendum A: Rental Fee Schedule.
All non-district groups are required to provide a Certificate of Liability Insurance in the amount of $1,000,000 each occurrance/$2,000,000 aggregate that identifies District 191 as the additional insured (or certificate holder). The Certificate of Liability Insurance releases the school district from liability for any incident that might occur while the group is on district property.
If you wish to sell concessions during your activity, you will need to contact the MN Department of Health to obtain the appropriate Food Stand License.
Custodial fees are applicable to all internal and external activities scheduled outside of building hours: Monday-Saturday (non-holiday) is $40/hour and Sunday/holiday is $55/hour.
For more details, you can access the District 191 Community Use of School Facilities Policy.
For information about scheduling guidelines for internal facilities requests, please refer to the Facility Scheduling Guidelines for District/School Sponsored Events.
