Policy Study of Non-School Group Usage of Missouri Public School Facilities.
Kirby, Robert G., Jr.
This study presents survey data from school district administrators on the rules and regulations that govern non-school use of public school facilities as adopted by 165 Missouri Public School Districts. It compares whether districts having written policies governing non-school use of facilities differed from districts with no such policies relative to enrollment, state classification status, membership in the Missouri School Boards Association, and classification as being metropolitan or outstate districts. Data show 98 percent of the school districts surveyed allowed non-school use and 93.1 percent had written policies regarding such use. District size and location had no apparent influence on the existence of written policies. Finally, 86.2 percent of the districts charged fees for non-school use of facilities. Large districts generally charged more and had more specific rental policies for non-school use of facilities than did smaller districts. Appendices provide the survey instrument, various correspondence regarding the study, policy statements, sample fee structures, and population of the study. (Contains 72 references.) (GR)
