• Classification System for User Groups

    To provide the greatest access and use of the school district’s facilities to those groups, organizations, teams and individuals who directly support the academic and extracurricular programs of the school district, a tiered fee structure has been developed based upon the following user group classification system:

    Class I: Interscholastic athletic teams (as defined under Board Policy No. 123) and student groups, clubs, and other extracurricular activities (as defined under Board Policy No. 122) that are sponsored and approved by the Pine-Richland School District and its Board of School Directors.  The term Class I shall also include Board-recognized parent-teacher organizations or associations (PTO/PTA) that are affiliated with individual schools in the district.

    Class II: Organizations which meet at least one (1) of the following criteria:

    A. The organization constitutes an athletic program, team or other activity that receives funding from the Pine-Richland School District to offset a portion of its expenses. 

    B. The organization constitutes a district-recognized booster organization that directly supports either (i) a Class I team, group or activity; or (ii) a partially-funded team, program or activity as defined in subsection (A) directly above.
     
    C. The organization constitutes a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation or an unincorporated not-for-profit community-based group/organization that provides artistic, cultural, recreational, athletic or educational programs and/or activities to and for the benefit of residents of the Township of Pine and/or Richland Township. In order to qualify for Class II status under this provision, the group or organization must provide evidence demonstrating that at least seventy-five percent (75%) of its active membership and/or participants are comprised of residents of the Township of Pine and/or Richland Township.
     
    Class III: For-profit company or individual that provides artistic, cultural, recreational, athletic or educational programs and/or activities to and for the benefit of residents of the Township of Pine and/or Richland Township. In order to qualify for Class III status under this provision, the group or organization must provide evidence demonstrating that at least seventy-five percent (75%) of its active membership and/or participants are comprised of residents of the Township of Pine and/or Richland Township.

    Class IV: All other individuals, organizations and groups not included in Class I, Class II or Class III
