DPS is committed to making District facilities and equipment available for use to our wider community. We believe that the use of our public school facilities as community centers promotes educational, recreational, cultural, and civic activities that promote success, health, and well-being across all age groups.
- Rentals of Hope Academy, Stephen Decatur Middle School, and Eisenhower and MacArthur High Schools must be scheduled using CommunityUse, the District's online facility scheduler. First time users must request access to CommunityUse, see this guide for step-by-step instructions.
- Use of all other facilities may be scheduled using this Application for Use of School Facilities.
- We ask that all renters and participants comply with School Board Policy 8:20 Community Use of School Facilities and follow these Procedures for Use of School Facilities.
- Rental or staffing fees may apply, see this list of estimated costs for facility rentals.
Please contact the district's Business office with any questions at 217.362.3020.
