All facility usage is defined as either a district administered activity or a non-district administered activity.
District Administered Activities
Activities where staff are hired and paid by the district. The district is responsible for approving meeting dates or schedules and has financial oversight of the activity. Any payment of fees for participating in the activity are made payable directly to the Rockwood School District. District administered activities also include: a)Parkway-Rockwood Community Education activities; b)Special School District and Rockwood National Education Association activities; c)district recognized booster group activities directly associated with a MSHSSA sanctioned activity; and d)District PTO/PSO and Rockwood Schools Foundation activities with the primary purpose to support and further the mission of the District and which are solely administered by the PTO/PSO or Rockwood Schools Foundation policies and guidelines. District administered activities are not assessed a facility usage fee in most cases. Insurance and personnel fees may be required, depending on the nature of the activity and/or the time and type of facility being used.

Non-District Administered Activities
Activities where staff are not hired or paid by the district. The district is not responsible for setting meeting dates or schedules and does not have financial oversight of the activity. Any payment of fees for participating in the activity are made payable to an individual/organization other than Rockwood School District. Non-district administered activities must provide insurance for the activity and facility and personnel rates apply.
Any individual or group requesting use of school facilities will be charged fees in accordance with current rates, unless otherwise approved by the Superintendent/designee.

Rockwood reserves the right to change reservations to other rooms with the understanding that, if possible, comparable facilities will be provided. Cancellations by the Organization must be in writing to the Facility Usage office. No fee will be assessed if cancellation is made more than 10 business days prior to the facility use. Cancellations made 6-10 business days prior to facility use will be subject to a fee equal to 20% of the facility usage fees. Cancellations made five business days or less prior to the facility use will require full payment of the facility usage fees and any personnel rates that may apply.
The privilege of use may be suspended immediately if there is evidence of misuse of the facilities at any time. Any damage, broken equipment, vandalism or other alteration of buildings and/or grounds caused by a user group will be billed to that user group.
