Picture representing Use of Facilities

Mars Area School Board recognizes that public schools are established, maintained and operated at public expense. Therefore, school facilities and grounds should be made available for legitimate community purposes as long as such use does not interfere with the operation of the school program or result in undue operational costs to the School District. The Board provides for the use of school facilities in accordance with District policy in the following order of priority:


  • Class APublic schools of the District.
  • Class B - School-Affiliated Organizations (including Board-recognized booster groups), Mars Area Elementary PTO, and Mars Planet Foundation. The primary purpose of these groups is to supplement and/or augment the District’s educational programs.
  • Class C - District non-profit civic, recreational and church groups.
  • Class D - Private individual/groups and commercial uses.


For a determination as to your organization's "class," call (724) 625-1518, ext. 1505.
