Facilities Use Request
Orange Public Schools understands that schools are a major part of the community and encourages the development of a sense of ownership by the community. The primary purpose of our schools is to offer a full educational program for our children. Prudent use and management of school facilities outside of the regular operating schedules provided that such use does not interfere with the orderly conduct of a thorough and efficient system of education, allows the community to benefit more broadly from the use of its schools. The District understands the value of the schools as being central to the neighborhoods in which they are located. We also understand that the District is responsible for the long-term preservation of the schools, so associated fees are intended to assist in that endeavor.
Applications for facility use must be received fourteen (14) business days before the start of the activity with appropriate proof of insurance along with a hold harmless statement as a prerequisite to being considered. The Board reserves the right to deny permits if they are not consistent with the above-mentioned goals and/or prohibit, rescind, modify, change or waive fees for the approved use of the facilities.
Orange Public Schools is pleased to announce a new online facility request and rental system designed to provide a positive user experience for all. With the new system, reservation requests can be submitted easily and will be handled more efficiently. Renters will be able to access photos and descriptions, see real-time availability, get estimated quotes, and pay online.
In partnering with Facilitron, Orange Public Schools has launched custom facility use sites for the District and each school – allowing facility use requests to be submitted at any time. You can view and request all district facilities at: https://www.facilitron.com/ops07050. Although the process of requesting/approval/management of facility use is now digital, what’s implemented on Facilitron, remains the same as dictated by Orange Public Schools’ board policies on facility use. The District’s administrative staff makes final decisions on all facility use requests. Received
Facilitron will assist with the set-up of organization and user accounts along with verification of non-profit status (if applicable). Facilitron will also collect payment and proof of insurance (certificate of insurance) on Orange Public Schools’ behalf. Payments can be submitted conveniently on Facilitron. Payment options include major credit cards, checks, ACH/eCheck, and Paypal. Proof of insurance (certificate of insurance) can also be conveniently uploaded into the system, and/or it can be obtained directly through Facilitron.
The new Facilitron system is now live for all sites. Moving forward, the only way to request the use of a district facility is by creating a Facilitron account and submitting a request online. Please click HERE for an introduction to placing a request. For those who had reservations with Orange Public Schools prior to Facilitron, accounts have already been created on your behalf, and an automated email has been sent to you to create a password to access your renter account. If you need any assistance setting up an account and/or submitting a facility use request, you can contact Facilitron directly at: email@example.com, or by calling them at: 800-272-2962 ext 1.
