Renton School District

Facility Rental

Facility Rental is open and accepting event requests. COVID-19 protocols are in place for all rentals. For answers to any questions, please email the Facility Rental Team and we will be happy to help!

All educational and athletic facilities shall be available for use by the community under this fee schedule and prioritization program, as long as such use will not interfere with school activities or reflect negatively on the Renton School District. 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.

Application

Only registered clients may submit an application to use RSD facilities. Registered clients may be either internal groups (e.g., student athletic events, activities) or external groups (e.g., affiliates, partners, community members). All clients wishing to rent district facilities, both internal and external, must complete the Online Application and adhere to the Rules and Regulations. Applications must include payment of the application fee and any anticipated rental fees.

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 rsd.facilityuse@rentonschools.us 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.

For questions or assistance with accessibility of the online application, please contact the Facility Rental Manager by email or by phone at 425.204.3414

If this is your first time using the system, we have provided some Getting Started information to help get your account and organization(s) setup within the system.

Change Fee

A per-request change fee of $25.00 may be assessed if requests to change any aspect of the application are made after final approval from the Facility Rental Manager.

Facility Equipment

Rental of district property does not guarantee or expressly allow the use of equipment such as chairs, tables, sporting equipment, projection, or sound systems, etc. While this equipment may be made available, for specific questions about the equipment, please ask your district contact about the space you are requesting. If equipment is used, any excessive wear or damage, as determined by district staff, will be back billed to the client at the cost of replacement or repair.

Payments

Any charges for use of the facility will be billed to the applicant through the online rental system. Organizations, groups, or individuals shall not make any payment directly to any school employee or make any individual arrangements with employees as to service charges. Neither facilities rental staff nor event support staff are authorized to make changes to prescribed fees.

Renters of the Renton Memorial Stadium, Renton IKEA Performing Arts Center, Theater at Hazen, and the Lindbergh Theater are subject to additional deposit and document submission requirements. See the fee section below.

Invoiced charges are due within 30 days of the invoice date.

Past-due Accounts

If payment is made after 30 days of the invoice date, a late fee may be assessed. If payment is not made within 90 days of the invoice date, additional fees may be assessed and the account may be sent to collections. Renters that have a past-due balance may be refused rental of district facilities. This includes any late fees or deposits that are outstanding.

Cancellation by the District

The school district reserves the right to cancel non-school activities in favor of school activities whenever conflicts arise. The school district will notify renters of the cancellation as soon as possible. In the event of an inclement weather cancelation by the district, District staff will attempt to accommodate a reschedule. If the district cancels for a non-weather related reason, any deposits made towards the event will be returned.

Cancellation by the Renter

A renter may cancel without penalty at any time up to two weeks (14 calendar days) before the rental date. Cancellations less than two weeks will be charged 50 percent, non-refundable, of the estimated fees. Any cancellations within five days of the rental date will be billed at 100 percent, non-refundable, of the estimated fees.

Renters of the Renton Memorial Stadium, Renton IKEA Performing Arts Center, Theater at Hazen, and the Lindbergh Theater are subject to additional cancellation policies. See the associated fee section below.

Proof of Authorized Rental

When using district facilities for purposes outlined in this document, the client must maintain a copy of the approved rental contract (electronic or physical copy) while on the premises and be able to produce that copy upon request by any district staff including custodial and security. Failure to produce the approved rental contract may result in refusal of access or being asked to vacate the premises. The copy can be printed or made available electronically on a tablet or mobile device.

Valid Identification

Each user of a district facility may be required to show proof of identity prior to being granted entry into their rented space(s). The user(s) must be of at least 18 years of age.

Right to Revoke

The Board of Directors reserves the right to cancel any permit given, and refund any payment made for use of Renton School District high school turf fields and tracks, when it deems such action advisable and in the best interest of the school district, or to modify its policy at any time. All permits automatically expire at the close of the school year. A separate request will be required for use of any school facilities during a vacation period.

Special Event Permits

Patrons are advised that RSD facilities lie within multiple overlapping governmental jurisdictions. Those patrons considering large outdoor events (e.g., producing events that would draw more than 300 people) may require a special event permit. RSD has facilities within the following municipalities: City of Renton, City of Newcastle, City of Seattle, and Un-incorporated King County. RSD facilities also lie within the Renton Regional Fire District. Jurisdictional limitations on noise, capacity, open flame, traffic, etc. are set forth by the governing jurisdiction and must be considered by the client PRIOR to final consideration/approval of the rental contract by RSD. Client use of RSD facilities is always contingent upon approval and receipt of required jurisdictional permits and other required coordination.
