2.      SFUSD: Submit Applications for Summer Facility Use by end of April/early May


The SFUSD Real Estate Office is asking all CBOs to submit their applications for use of SFUSD facility this summer to their office by April 24th, if possible, or if not possible by May 3rd.   SFUSD’s permitting policy requires a complete permit application must be submitted to the Real Estate Office at least 20 business days prior to the first requested use date.  Information about SFUSD facility use is posted at http://www.sfusd.edu/en/doing-business-with-sfusd/real-estate.html.


If you have any questions, please contact the SFUSD Real Estate Office at (415) 241-6090.


Please note: SFUSD Revised Summer Rental Fee Schedule

SFUSD has revised its summer rental fee schedule to:

a)      Extend the discounted rates for CBOs from June 3, 2013 through July 24, 2013, for a total of 7 and half weeks available at the discounted rate.

b)      Alter the $100 flat hourly rate charged for the use of facilities before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. The hourly rate will be applied as a flat rate regardless of the number of rooms used during those hours. However, when possible, the District strongly encourage all CBOs to consolidate their programs into ONE large facility such as a multipurpose room or a cafeteria after 5:00 p.m. (or as early in the day as possible) in an effort to minimize custodial cost, so that the custodial staff can start cleaning earlier in the shift.


The revised fee schedule with these changes included is attached. For more information, please go to:
