Building Fees

Building use fees are charged according to the current year’s rental rates. There are separate schedules for stadium and theater fees. All estimated facility use fees must be prepaid. Payment is collected at the building that is to be used.

Group I users, the school-oriented group, may use any district facility free of charge. If there is an additional cost to the district, such as a custodian’s time, special equipment arrangements, etc., that cost will be charged to the group involved.

The Cities of Kirkland, Redmond and Sammamish also use school buildings or grounds free of charge, though the energy surcharge fees apply. These city users will be charged for stadium and theater uses and custodial costs for any building use will be charged as necessary.

Custodial fees are charged only when a custodian is not normally on duty. The custodian’s time will be paid for by the user group. Each use will be charged a minimum of one hour additional custodial time for opening, cleanup and closing the facility. A custodian working on the weekend is paid a minimum of two and one half hours as specified by union contract. A custodian working on a district holiday will be paid twice their regular rate of pay.

A food service employee must be present whenever a kitchen facility is used and labor fees will be charged.

No refunds will be given for cancelations by user, however fees paid for activities may be applied to reschedule facility use. Additional applications will be required if extended usage is anticipated.

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.
