Facility Partnership Program

 

The Lambton Kent District School Board encourages partnerships between community partners to share facilities for better use of public facilities owned by the School Board. Facility partnerships are intended to establish shared use during school hours between the Board and community partners. Facility partnerships opportunities will be available in schools where excess space has been identified by The Lambton Kent District School Board.

 

The use of space in schools, strengthen the schools role in the community and promotes coordination and access of services for students and the whole community. The sharing of these facilities will continue to be for the benefit of the Board, students and the community while ensuring student achievement remain the highest priority. The health and safety of the students  will remain the primary focus when implementing this initiative.

 

A facility partnership is intended to provide the following opportunities for both Board and community:

  • Reduce operating costs and maximize use of public facilities.
  • Improve services available to students and the community.
  • Build relationships between schools board and community partners and the public.
  • Maximize efficiency and access for service delivery through usage of school facilities.

On June 22, 2010 The Lambton Kent District School Board approved the Facility Partnerships policy and regulations which is accessible through the following link: Facility Partnerships - Policy Document (pdf) and Facility Partnerships - Regulations Document (pdf).
