The Renton School District (referred to as RSD or “the District” in the Facility Rental section) recognizes that our facilities, athletic fields, and grounds are provided primarily for the education of our students. Thereafter, our facilities and grounds shall be made available to the public in adherence to the priorities and regulations outlined in this Facility Rental Handbook and Fee Schedule. District representatives shall endeavor to make all educational and athletic facilities available for use by the community provided such use will not interfere with school activities or reflect negatively on RSD. All athletic fields should be available for community use, after hours, except where the risk of damage to equipment or facilities is high (e.g., Inclement weather, high impact activities that pose substantial risk of damage to the field, or maintenance activities that are required). In accordance with district policy, no person or organization seeking to use District facilities pursuant to these policies shall be denied the use of the facilities, or be subjected to discrimination, on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, previous arrest or incarceration, or disability.
Organized activities include groups of five or more participants and must complete a rental agreement to use district facilities.

Submission of your event application or verbal affirmation of facility availability, does NOT constitute approval of the event/rental contract. Additional administrative review is required for all applications. Depending upon the complexity of the event, additional approvals and permitting may also be required. You will be notified of approval/disapproval/follow up coordination required for your request via email, generally within 5-10 business days following submission of your application. Facility rental email communication will come from email@example.com or other designated system email address. Applications which are approved will always be provided in writing from the Facilities Rental Manager/Representative as they constitute a written contract between the client’s organization and RSD.
Additionally, the District requires all clients to have a physical print out (or electronic copy) of the approved rental contract available for inspection by administration or district representative at their event. Failure to produce this proof of facilities rental approval may result in cancellation, trespass, or additional administrative sanctions.

Client use of RSD facilities is always contingent upon approval and receipt of required jurisdictional permits and other required coordination. RSD reserves the right to require proof of jurisdictional permit/coordination prior to final event approval.
All Facility Rental Clients assume sole responsibility for reporting and paying any applicable excise taxes, use taxes, ticket percentages, etc. to the City of Renton, state, or other applicable governing body. Please consult your legal counsel with any questions.
