Joint Use Agreements: A How-To Guide.
Rizzuti, Tom; Silva, Tom; Roop, Mel
Joint use agreements provide a school district and another entity, whether it be a city, county, non-profit, or private organization, with the opportunity to construct a facility and share both the capital and operating costs and responsibilities. The purpose of this manual is to introduce joint use agreements and their potential. The manual begins with a definition of what a joint use agreement is and what it is not. Next it suggests a number of considerations which should go into a joint use agreement and provides a guideline by which a joint use agreement can be drafted. Finally, the manual discusses some potential problems a district may encounter in the implementation of a joint use and some possible solutions to these problems. Each section includes a table to help summarize its main points. (Appendices contain the Civic Center Act, and two sample agreements.) (EV)
