Use of SFSD School Buildings

General Guidelines

Local non-profit and/or civic organizations may rent school buildings for educational, cultural, civic, social, recreational, governmental, and non-partisan political activities. (Policy KF/KF-R)

PLEASE NOTE: Spaces previously known as Community Centers no longer operate in the same manner. During the school day, students are utilizing those spaces and they are not available for rental or community use.  After school (2:45-6:30pm), those spaces are used for structured care offered through the Community Learning Centers.  The ongoing agreement with the City of Sioux Falls allows their adult leagues to operate in the spaces from 6:30-10pm Monday through Friday and for eight (8) tournaments on weekends. 

Sioux Falls School District Policy KF/KF-R guides use of school facilities by community organizations. The policy allows ONLY non-profit organizations or businesses with non-profit paperwork and required liability insurance to rent/reserve school facilities. A proposal is being considered that MAY allow individuals and families to reserve space on weekends for private events. As of September 1, the proposal remains in DRAFT form. 

Any proposal would need to be approved by the City Council and the SFSD School Board prior to individuals and families using school facilities. It is possible that it will be mid-October before a final determination is made and before any use by individuals would be considered.

All organizations should review and save the "Building Use Rates" and "Building Use Guidelines" documents on this page.
