Facility Rental

Craven County Schools encourages the use of school buildings and grounds by the community for educational, recreational, civic, and cultural activities to the extent possible under the law. We believe that school facilities are an important resource in developing and sustaining lifelong learning, in promoting intergovernmental cooperation, and in encouraging citizen participation in community activities.

When space is available, during times that do not interfere with Craven County Schools instructional programs, student activities, activities of school-related groups or CCS Adult Education classes, community members may reserve school facilities on a scheduled basis.

Please refer to Craven County School Board Regulation 5030. CCS Facility Rental Form shall be filled out with a copy of a Certificate of Insurance and turned into the Principal of the location of choice. Certificates of Insurance should maintain a minimum general liability coverage of $1 million dollars. Building Use Forms need to be approved by both the Principal and the Assistant Superintendent for Facilities before the event takes place. Once approved by the Principal, the application is sent to the Assistant Superintendent for Facilities for final approval. Once form is received at Central Service upon approval you will receive your original document with fees associated for event usage.


 Please read Policy 5030 located on our district website for additional information.
