How much money does East Lake Community Church pay the school district for use of South Junior High School? It seems they would have to pay someone to open the school over the weekend. Plus, wouldn’t the school district have to pay for utilities?
Tom Bracciano, the district’s division director of facilities and maintenance, said the school board’s policy encourages use of school buildings and grounds by community groups when use does not interfere with school routine or activities. The board has approved rental fees for using the facilities. “For example, East Lake Community Church is charged $750 per use of South Junior High. These fees cover the cost of utilities and staff overtime,” Bracciano said.
