Categorical Definitions

Community groups within the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District shall be permitted to use all facilities for worthwhile purposes when such users will not interfere with the school program. In order to carry out this service to the best interest of the whole community, organizations seeking use of the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District facilities have been divided into categories as follows:

Group 1 Allied School Groups
This includes local, non-profit organizations whose main purpose is to support educational programs and activities for students in our district. This group would include parent/teacher organizations, school booster groups and other school related groups.
Group 2 Youth Groups These are general, civic and non-profit in nature and their primary reason for existence is the betterment of children, the community, and the state. This group would include service clubs, church-related youth groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Campfire Girls and local youth athletic teams and local youth organizations. For small group events held during regular business hours, certain fees may be waived at district discretion. Local government agencies using district facilities during normal business hours are included in this group.
Group 3 Adult Groups/Non-Local Youth Groups Local for-profit organizations and social gatherings. This group would include homeowners associations, political, adult athletics, religious and other non-profit adult organizations. Non-local youth athletic teams, non-local youth organizations and local for-profit youth activities.
Group 4 Commercial Groups Profit making enterprises, professional groups, conventions, and promotional groups are examples of groups, who come under this classification. Promotional groups, who have the potential of making large profits, must be approved by the Sumner School District Board.

  District sponsored curricular and co-curricular activities retain first priority in the use of facilities and fields.

The above classifications shall be the order of priority in granting use permits and shall be the basis for establishing differentials in rental and other charges. Fee schedules will be maintained on the District web site and made available in the District Athletics & Facilities Scheduling Office. Local is defined as groups having fifty percent (50%) of the participants residing in the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District boundaries.
