Background: On October 26, 2017, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors took action to direct the Administration to bring forth to the appropriate committee a policy and procedure to address situations related to Administrative Policy 5.2(3)(a)(2)(e). Administrative Policy 5.02, and Administrative Procedure 5.02, Use of School Facilities, have been revised to include provisions for the charging of fees and/or sale of concessions while permitting school district facilities provided a Use of School Facilities Waiver Application has been approved by the Office of Operations, Department of Recreation and Community Services.

This change in policy and procedures accommodates requests by outside non-profits and community groups to exchange monies on site while permitting a school district facility. Recent examples that have required a waiver to Administrative Policy 5.02 include a Bike Bazaar by the Bike Federation of Wisconsin at Hamilton High School, and a Farmers Market at Enderis Playfield. Permission to charge fees will only be granted if the profit making use benefits the Milwaukee Public Schools, a charitable organization, or is for the purpose that serves the public good.
Fiscal Impact Statement: This item does not authorize expenditures.
Implementation and Assessment Plan Upon approval by the Board, the Administration will follow the revised Policy and Procedures.
Recommendation: Your Committee recommends that the Board approve the proposed changes made to Administrative Policy 5.02, Use of School Facilities, and Administrative Procedure 5.02, Use of School Facilities, as attached to this item.
