Cincinnati Public Schools' buildings and grounds may be rented by the public for use outside of school hours.
CPS' new or fully renovated buildings are designed as Community Learning Centers (CLC) to help strengthen ties between Cincinnati Public Schools and its neighborhoods. As part of the CLC concept, the district makes its facilities available for rental before and after school, during evenings and on weekends.
Through partnerships, Cincinnati Public Schools are centers of activity, tailored to each community's individual needs for services, and recreational, educational and cultural opportunities. Whenever possible, new buildings are designed with community areas, such as libraries, computer labs, gyms, auditoriums and conference rooms, located away from classroom wings and close to parking lots and main entrances.
School facilities may be used by groups or organizations for any lawful purpose, as long as the use adheres to Board policies (7000 Property) for appropriate use and does not interfere with school operations.
